      Where on earth do you get such fake news. This is completely wrong. The trains is running backwards because is the tours they do. The train will be back. I work on Main Street with the trains. Get a clue before you print something.

    They weren’t testing it… on certain mornings they have the Magic Behind the Steam Trains tour where it picks up the tour from the Storybook station and takes them backstage where they perform maintenance. Please look into things before you make up rumors like this.

      Actually its not made up i saw it the other day when i was in frointerland i only know bc i was waiting to get off splash heard the train and looked up and saw it going overhead. Wondering the same as the article. Btw its not spreading rumors sometimes these people on itm just write articles they think the guest would appreciate. Besides wdw themselves at the beginning before close said they might test this once tron was further along.

    The trains are not running, even backwards. There is too much work that needs to be done refurbishing the tracks. It will not run until sometime in 2021. The only time a train moves in Magic Kingdom is when the Steam tour is pulling in and out of Fantasyland.

      The track has already been refurbished. The only part left is the part affected by Tron.

    Back in the early 90s, during construction of Splash Mtn, they were running the trains backwards from MS to Toontown’s station before returning in regular mode, so this latest move isn’t unprecedented.

      The tour has been suspended indefinitely due to the ongoing construction of Tron and work that needs to be done on the railroad. I was on the last tour Oct. 31st. So the trains running in reverse couldn’t have been for the tour. I really do hope they decide to partially reopen the railroad by shuttling back and forth between stations. This is how the railroad operated for one year beginning in November 1990 until late in 1991 when development of Splash Mountain began.
