Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Derailed for Nine Months
Now comes word Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which opened in September 1979, is getting a $4 million rehab itself beginning Monday.
But Big Thunder is expected to be closed for nine months, compared with five months for the Knott's log ride.

The work will also reportedly require the closing of the trail and gate leading into Frontierland from Fantasyland for 11 days beginning Monday. After that, it is to be closed weekdays, except holidays, through April.
