along with quite a few other movies!

Someone on the NYC Transit Modelers list just posted a New York Times article regarding the trains that ran on 11th Avenue in Manhattan. After giving a brief history it gave a YouTube link to 1938's King of the Newsboys starring Lew Ayres and Helen Mack. The film recreates the line with Ayres prototypically riding a horse in front of the train to warn pedestrians. It must have been shot somewhere around Los Angeles; it's certainly not 11th street. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/25/realestate/the-railroad-tracks-that-turned-a-street-into-death-avenue.html?_r=2&emc=eta1 - Al Westerfield
