The Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad has three 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge 4-4-0 steam outline locomotives supplied by Severn Lamb, which are named after past Walt Disney Company presidents.[1][2] Unlike other railroads at Disneyland-style parks, Hong Kong Disneylands locomotives are steam-outline locomotives (diesel locomotives dressed up to look like steam locomotives) due to Hong Kong's strict emissions standards.
