The Western River Railroad (reporting mark WRR) is Tokyo Disneyland's version of its steam-powered railroad. Its route is 5,283 feet (1,610 m) in length and does not circle the whole park; it instead passes through Adventureland, Westernland, and Critter Country. Additionally, this railroad differs from other Disney railroads because its track gauge is 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow gauge as compared with other Disney railroad track gauges of 3 ft (914 mm) 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.
Guests face forward in the passenger cars. Each coach has a small door that swings inward as a safety precaution.
Climb aboard an authentic steam train for a round trip through Adventureland, Critter Country, and Westernland. You'll go on a journey that takes you through a tropical jungle and on to the American Old West.
