I had just visited with Gary Allen on the first of the month. He & I talked steam for awhile...believe he was an extra brakeman on at least one of these trips behind the 3 spot. Said they'd leave Jimtown before the sun was up to get to the shooting location when the director wanted. Gary said it was one of his greatest times railroading.
