  • The Western River Railroad is Tokyo Disneyland's version of its steam-powered railroad. It does not circle the whole park; it instead passes through Advenutureland, Frontierland and Critter Country. Additionally, this railroad differs from other Disney railroads because its track gauge is 2 ft 6 in narrow gauge as compared with other Disney railroad track gauges of 3 ft narrow gauge. At the time that the Western River Railroad was opened, Japanese rail regulations required that any railway line with more than one stop be subject to the same rules as any other conventional rail line. As such, there is only one stop on the Western River Railroad in order to avoid having to charge fares and to allow the use of passenger cars that are not fully enclosed, which would not be allowed otherwise. Guests pass the Jungle Cruise, the Big Thunder Mountain, an old "mining town" featuring an ex Rio Grande Southern caboose, the Rivers of America, Splash Mountain, and passes through a version of the Primeval World before heading back to the station. It is presented by Takara Tomy.
