Santa Fe & Disneyland R.R. - Part 5

This just in: At first glance this appears to be another early Santa Fe & Disneyland R.R. ticket like some of the others I’ve posted before, you can view them all here (Parts 1-4 link).

Upon closer inspection I noticed this ticket differs from other tickets in my collection and other tickets I’ve seen. The Stub section lists “The New Circle Route”, this wording matches the little 1956 Santa Fe brochure from part 4 (link). 






Yes ladies and gentlemen, the back side of a rare Santa Fe & Disneyland R.R. ticket in all of its Globe Paper goodness.






Was the “New Circle Route” wording used when the two trains stopped passing each other and started making stops at the other stations? I’m confused, you better let me off at the Holidayland station so I can figure this all out.

My favorite Disneyland tickets of all. This is a beauty.

Nice rare find, and I'm with you, I wish I knew what exactly the difference was between the "New Circle Route" and whatever they did before.

I've been looking for ever for a nice clean image of the Globe watermark paper to turn into a desktop... What a geek!

I was hoping this blank back would be good to work with, but on closer examination, it's flecked with black and goldenrod is not my favorite color.

I was looking through old memorabilia and found a green ticket exactly like the one posted minus the hole punch. Along with it I found some Mark Twain tickets and a map of the park. The map has a drawing of Tinker Bell on it and is copyrighted 1956. I'm not sure how long they handed out these specific maps. I was hoping that you were able to figure out what the "new circle route" meant. Do you know what year the 2 trains stopped passing each other? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks so much!
