Dec 12th, 2017: Sierra Railway No. 3

Do you remember this locomotive.
What do you mean you’ve never seen it so how could you remember it.
Bet you have.



You’ve seen it if you’ve seen…

Built in 1891, “Sierra No. 3” was adopted by Hollywood in 1948.

Quote:
William L. Withhuhn, former transportation history curator at the Smithsonian Institution, wrote, “Sierra Railway No. 3 has appeared in more motion pictures, documentaries, and television productions than any other locomotive. It is undisputedly the image of the archetypal steam locomotive that propelled the USA from the 19th century into the 20th.”

Oh, happy day!

'Casey Jones' was a childhood favourite of mine along with 'Union Pacific'.



It's a shame that 'Cannonball Express' appears back to front on the engine name plate.

I'm not really into Westerns, so the only ones of those I'm sure I've seen were Back to the Future III and Brisco County Jr. Gotta mix some SF into my Westerns.

I watch the show; very good. I haven't seen the movie.

Firefly's another excellent space Western. If it had survived longer, they might have figured out a way to sneak this locomotive in, though it would have been tricky.

Westworld still may, though these days it's probably so much easier to CGI it.

And see Futureworld, the lesser-known sequel to the classic Westworld.

Just watched parts of it (FutureWorld) over the last couple months on the Comet Network.
