Did you know that the Casey Jr. Locomotive that pulls the Casey Jr. Circus Train in Fantasyland is not actually pulling the train at all! In actual fact, the train is being pulled by the circus music organ wagon behind the locomotive. A hidden conbustion engine inside the wagon hauls the rest of the train whilst pushing the locomotive forwards!

A while back, the ride engineers had to make room for more animals on the Carrousel in Fantasyland. In order to do this, they removed four sleighs from the ride. Walt didn't want to just throw them away, so he decided to put them elsewhere in the park. The engineers converted them into train cars for the Casey Jr. Circus Train. There are two trains that are there and they each have two sleighs.

The sleighs used on the Casey Jr. Circus Train were put there when the ride was built and were a part of the origional Sunnyside Merry-Go-Round.

I'm not positive on this one, but the castle you go through on Casey Jr's train ride I BELEIVE is Sleeping Beauty's castle.

The castle that you go under on Casey Jr. Circus Train is not Sleeping Beauty's castle. It's Cinderella's castle. They will tell you this on Storybookland Canal Boats
