Back in the day … Disneyland Matterhorn fence colors

Back in the day, the Disneyland Matterhorn in Orange County  CA, was closed in the winter every year to be freshened up and maintained. This queue line fence would be on our work schedule, and the new hires would be sent out to work on it. Sitting on the cold concrete, we’d be painting each individual color inside, and if you notice, about a 3/8″ outline on the outside of the cutouts. Oh, it was a pain, but it was a chops-builder as well — you wouldn’t want to spend any more time out there than you needed, which was great motivation to get fast and accurate with that little lettering quill or soft fitch brush…
