Walt Disney World Railway static exhibit
Posted: Thursday December 6, 2018 9:17am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Walt Disney World Railroad will be out of service for an extended period as work continues on then construction of the Tron Coaster in Tomorrowland.

Cast Members at the railroad are suggesting the closure may be as long as two years, and until then, the Main Street U.S.A. station will serve as a static exhibit with one of the trains available for up-close viewing.

The Lilly Belle is currently in the station, with railroad Cast Members on hand to answer any questions.

At the other stations, signage is up letting guests know that the service is not available.

There's been absolutely nothing credible since Disney posted they were training cast members. They could easily get the track completed within a week, however there doesn't seem to be any real rush to do so.

Any new rumors of when this will reopen? Perhaps a D23 announcement? This December marks four years since they closed it.

The trees infront of the platform are big enough, and looks like there's the same amount of space there between the tracks & the lake, so it should definitely be doable.

Even I was surprised by how awful it looks and I've been complaining about the TRON box for quite a while. It immediately jumps out at you. It's so incongruous with the surroundings in that photo that it almost looks photoshopped in.

Where would they be planted? The other side of the tracks goes down to a pond.

It looks like some decent sized trees should be able to cover that up over time, atleast when looking straight at the station building. But I agree right now it's not good.

The Tron show building being so visible right next to the train station should be a crime.

The moveable planters have been removed by the Fantasyland train station - Some work happening on the water tower -

Not as bad as what comes out of casey's, matter of scale

Aren’t cow farts a major source of methane? If they really, really cared, they’d be executing cows in Liberty Square.

Disagree partially - I think it's a fun theme park. The food and drink is good too though, but who doesn't like those things! The place needs more rides for sure, but I could argue that's the case for every Disney park in the world other than Disneyland.

Sure, it was all marketing but they used cool ways to do it. Now its just a food court

In which case can we accept that the aspirational message of Epcot that people pine for, which amongst other things, brought topics of protection of the earth & seas to the forefront was based on false premise, and was actually...just another theme park (Happens to be one of my favourites), but let's be consistent.
