    Lone Ranger Locomotive... in CA

    It was amazing,
    but curious... is it an authentic representation of a real locomotive?

    We did notice the "hidden Mickey" ;-)

    I overheard that it's a real working refurbished locomotive that was used in the movie.

    Someone posted a thread with pics from the red carpet in DCA and there was a sign saying it was the actual one from the movie.

    It is now located outside of the security tents of the parks on the Harbor Blvd. side.

    They should leave it there for a while. It looks cool, and I have a feeling they won't be needing it for a sequel...

    Why not? The movie was very good, some pretty funny moments. Seems like the movie will be good enough for a sequel. (BTW, Saw the movie Sunday, Limited time Magic for AP'ers)

    I heard that the loco was one of the most expensive set pieces every built in cinema history and caused the budget to burst...

    Re: Lone Ranger Locomotive... in CA

    I am quite a bit of a train nerd, and am curious about how the film did the locomotive scenes.

    I am not sure if that is a real engine though, I don't see any brakes on it! Not to mention the train lacks the 'link and pin' or the knuckle couplers used to connect American trains of the era. Despite this it looks like a rather accurate representation of a real train locomotive, being a 4-6-0 (Ten-Wheeler) type which was used in the era the film is representing. Here is a latter era, yet similar locomotive: Steam Locomotive Information

    It should be noted Disney has a long history of designing realistic looking train locomotives, just look at the C.K. Holiday and the E.P. Ripley which are both old style operating steam engines built in 1955! Not to mention Ward Kimball did the paint design for the two engines at the Golden Spike Monument in Utah. Disney has shown they can make great replicas of old time trains.
