- The brake’s master cylinder in front of the driver’s seat is an indicator of the weight of the coach. It’s 10 feet tall, 17 feet in length, and weighs nearly two tons!
- The coache’s cabin is suspended by leather straps and curved leaf springs. We saw them in action when two “Princesses” placed their feet on the steps. The coach rocked softly–until a cast member politely asked the princesses to please not touch the coach.
Lastly, the detail on the Golden Coach is outstanding! Leave it to the Walt Disney Imagineers to design and construct this awesome vehicle.
