Brandon Kleyla is a former set decorator and creative for Walt Disney Imagineering, where he helped to create the now famous “Trader Sam’s” brand with locations in both Anaheim and Orlando. I had a great time laughing and chatting with Brandon about Trader Sams and the other projects he’s had a hand in, as well as the new Jungle Cruise changes, the enduring magic of Disney trains, and the invention of D&D cocktails. Have a listen!
Join me for a fun and candid conversation with retired Disney Imagineer, William Tyson! From Epcot World Showcase, to Disneyland Paris, Animal Kingdom, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and just about every Disney Park in-between, William has some amazing stories to tell from a 37 year career with WDI. Listen in on how the magic was made real working with some of the very best in the business!
Welcome to the first episode in this new series on building the Calico Mountain Expansion to the Thunder Mesa model railroad layout! In this episode, I cover the basics of building model railroad benchwork on this new On30/On18 section. Future episodes will cover track and wiring, building scenery and structures, backdrop painting, and so much more. A huge thank you to my Thunder Mesa patrons for helping to make this expansion and these how-to videos possible!
Thanks for tuning in, amigos!
