Iron Spike Room
No. 2 E.P. Ripley
Engine No. 2, the E.P. Ripley, was named after a past president of
the Santa Fe Railroad.
The engine is a 4-4-0, built by Disney in 1955. Like the C.K.
Holliday, the E.P. Ripley was also modeled on the Lilly Belle from
the Carolwood Pacific Railroad. However, it has a different stack
and trim to set it apart from the Holliday. The E.P. Ripley pulled the
freight train, while the Holliday pulled the passenger train.
The E.P. Ripley received a refurbishment in the late 1990s, and
was rededicated on March 27, 1999.
