Santa Fe And Disneyland Railway Conductor Hat Badge (1st Issue Badge, Ca. 1953):
Santa Fe and Disneyland Railway Conductor Hat Badge.
This is a very rare badge from theearliest daysof the Disneyland Railroad, when it was sponsored by the AT&SF Ry. (1953 to 1974) You will wait a long time before another of these are offered for sale. The badge is in great condition with some minor plating wear at the top, (see Photos)
The Disneyland Railroad was inspired by Walt Disney's love for trains. In 1953 the Walt Disney Company solicited major railroads for corporate sponsorship of the attraction. The Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway was the only company to respond. AT&SF sponsorship offset construction and fabrication costs and it opened and operated as the "Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad" in 1953.
I am reducing the size of my 25 year railroad hat badge collection, see my other sales for 3 other Disneyland and Disney World hat badges.
