overhaul keep pouring in!

Last week, I shared a video with you from a test run of Radiator Springs Racers, and this week I've got photos of the Red Car Trolley that will soon be rolling through the park, as well as another video surprise.

Check out both after the jump.

Earlier this week, the Red Car Trolley posed for photos as it made a test run through the Hollywood Pictures Backlot (soon to be known simply as Hollywood Land) in Disney California Adventure.

The trolley was inspired by the historic Pacific Electric Red Cars that connected the Greater Los Angeles Area from 1901 to 1961, and will officially make its debut in the park on June 15 when Buena Vista Street opens.

June 15 also marks the much anticipated opening of Cars Land.

Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer shot these photos of the new trolley car as it sat parked in front of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

The trolley's interior features advertisements for some of the food and merchandise spots that will open this summer on Buena Vista Street.


Disney also released this time-lapsed video of the installation of the neon sign at Flo's V8 Café in Cars Land. The sign--which uses glass instead of plastic, just like original neon signs of the past--took 14 hours to install when they put it up two months ago.

Disney California Adventure is about to get a whole lot more exciting this June, so be sure to keep checking back for more updates.
