    Walt Disney Imagineering have shared a video in which Walt Disney Imagineers Ben VanBeusekon and Mary Mac Eachin explain the creative process behind designing and producing themed cars for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. As they explain, in addition to being a part of the attraction’s innovative new ride system that causes cars to swing back and forth while they travel down the track, the train cars are painted and aged in a way that contributes to the storyline of the attraction.

    I watched this earlier today (I'm off work, so I'm having a few days of going Florida nuts!)

    I love the detail that each one is different to show varying ages of cart. I was also blown away by seeing them paint them by hand with so many different. stages.

    I notice there were a few clips of what looked like the actual cars going round the track
