I wonder If this Rail T still exists?
I miss that show...great photos, thanks for posting.
"That's Uncle Joe, He's a movin' kind of slow...."
The "V8" on the left side of the body is pretty funny!
i think Mr hainey stole it for parts
Good thing it has a battery box. I don't think cranking it would be fun.
It probably belongs to the Sierra Railway of the Railtown 1897 Historic Park in Jamestown, California.
They own the Sierra No. 3, the locomotive used in Petticoat Junction and many other tv shows and movies since 1929.
Sierra No. 3 was recently featured on an episode of "Ultimate Restorations."
It would be interesting to know it's history. It looks like one that was built and used rather than made up as a prop for the show.
My hunch was correct - Sierra Railroad- and it's been discussed before.
Here is a modern photo of "Hooterville"
How quickly we forget. I enjoy getting older in that everything is new all over again.
There's a downside to that, Richard. I'll be watching a movie and my wife will walk into the room. She'll tell me, "We've seen this". I'll respond, "No we haven't". Then it starts....
The cross ties in the old B&W Hooterville picture appear to be 2 X 8's, probably on a set, not actual RR.
The oil stains look real.
