Today, March 31, 2012, marks the 54th anniversary of one of the most imaginative theme park attractions created.  The Santa Fe Railroad at Disneyland, California, opened in 1958 with the unveiling of the Grand Canyon Diorama.  This realistic rendering of the Grand Canyon  was painted at Grosh Studios by artist Delmer J.
