Keeping Dreams on Track

The next time you are on the second level of the Main Street Railroad Station, whether waiting for the train or the fireworks, take a peek inside of the Engineer's office. The room is full of wonderful knick-knacks, including hats, tickets, book, oil cans, even a telephone.


But perhaps the greatest details are the electrical plans that lie on the desk. Take a close look - it appears as if a certain Mouse has made his way into the system!

Jessica,

Out of curiosity (I know, Curious George), can you tell me what the book titles are?

Also, is that considered a Hidden Mickey? I wonder if Steve Barrett has found it.

It's a little hard to make out in the photo (I might have to go back to see them in person) but it looks like the little brown books on the left are "Guttier's Works" Volumes V, III, and IV. Then the dark brown ones are "The Annual Cyclopaedia" 1884 New Series Vol IX and 1880 New Series Vol V. The lighter brown book to its right is "Appletons' Cyclopaedia of American Fiography" Vol I AAR-CRA. Unfortunately I can not see the title of the thinner book next to it.

As for the Mickey, I don't have Steve's book on me so I can't check if it is in there. I did check the catalog on his website and did not see it posted. Perhaps I should pass it along!

Jessica,

According to Steve Barrett's Hidden Mickeys: A Field Guide to Walt Disney World's Best Kept Secrets, 3rd Edition there is only one hidden mickey registered for the Main Street Railroad Station and that is in the scrollwork of the roofline.

You might want to send this one onto him.

I sent it on to Steve, and he wrote back that he is going to go and check this one out for himself. It's not the true proportions, but it looks like someone really wanted to place it there!
