DTD Update: Now That's A High Line

As you know, they're adding the "High Line" at Downtown Disney West Side by installing a trestle similar to the above to recreate the feel of an abandoned transit line in New York City.  It will stand adjacent the new Food Truck Park and can be used by food truck dining patrons to consume their purchases.  There won't be any trains operating but did you know that Disney has actual experience running a High Line?
Yes, the Tokyo DisneySea Electric Railway operates real passenger service via a "high line" between stations at that theme park and it looks very New York-ish. I took these pics last Fall during my visit to that park and it was enjoyable to pass over the numerous attractions along the routing and end up in NYC.
 Meanwhile construction continues on "our" High Line at Downtown Disney West Side.
