The Train in the film is none other than the Orange Blossom Cannonball, aka The Movie Train. The train began it's career in 1964 with the film "This Property Is Condemned" starring Natalie Wood, Robert Redford and Charles Bronson.
Famed director Martin Scorsese used the train in his second feature film "Boxcar Bertha" in 1972. Barbara Hershey and David Carradine teamed together to make a story of train robbers and lovers in the American South.
Since then over 20 additional TV and film projects have used the train. The most recent: "True Grit," "Appaloosa," "3:10 to Yuma," "There Will Be Blood," "O Brother, Where Art Thou," and "Rosewood."
