Columbia Broadcasting System
My all-time favorite railroad-themed TV show was/is Petticoat Junction. While not a movie per se, P.J. is old enough to be ancient history to a lot of people.
Color finally arrived with the third season (1965-66). This sent filmmakers scrambling back to Jamestown, California to re-film all the live train scenes of Sierra Railroad 4-6-0 #3 and “shorty” baggage/coach #5.
I selected “Bedloe’s Successor” (Season Three, Episode 11) as a typical show, but borrowed train shots from other episodes on my DVD set. So let’s “come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction”!
The Hooterville Cannonball rumbles towards the camera from episode 14, (What’s A Trajectory?). I’m guessing the locomotive was numbered #8 so it would view the same if the film happened to be reversed.
