The steam-powered train rounds the bend, passing a rolling meadow dusted with wildflowers and dotted by oak and sycamore trees.

The vintage locomotive is pulling two passenger cars around a two-mile loop at Santa Margarita Ranch in San Luis Obispo County, a roughly 15,000-acre property settled by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

But these carriages once had a very different home about 250 miles south of here. The passenger cars and two others in the ranch’s inventory were part of Disneyland’s railroad attraction when the theme park debuted in 1955.<<
