Steam train v Hannibal 8

Postby ric » Sat Feb 27, 2016 7:10 am

Just after Boracho, and before the Leslie Special reaches Grommet, Professor Fate tries to take a short cut via some railway tracks, but meets a train coming the other way.


He appears to join the tracks before a trestle bridge, cross the bridge, then meets the train, but in fact this is back on the section of track where he joined it.

Note the same two huge trees in the background.
The camera has moved to the left side of the rails.
Bushes have been dragged on to the dirt roads approaching from either side,
the dirt piled up between the rails has been removed,
and the "RAIL ROAD CROSSING" sign is just out of view to camera right.

The steam train is "Sierra No. 3", which has appeared in many movies.

so this section of track is probably somewhere on the Sierra Railroad

The later shots are probably about midday, and the shadows are going from left to right,
so the camera is probably looking west, and the track curves to the south as it goes around the bend.

It's roughly here on Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/ShV3mESnELL2
