Re: Murder in the Private Car

I had recoreded it on my DVR and played it in the background while I worked on models. I just basically looked up when they would mention something about trains. It was not that good of movie except towards the end. I would like to know how they made the chase scene. Not bad for being that old of special effects.

Thanks  Al And Pat:

I'm glad that I was able to catch this film on TCM.  I didn't watch 
most of it but my wife called me for the steam sequences at the end. 
As an SP steam modeler all I can say
is "What a treat".  A real surprise was a shot of the bridge over the 
Sacramento River  which I have from Overland and is awaiting 
installation on my layout.

Thanks for the "Heads Up".

Watched the film today. It's not very good - basically an "old dark 
house" on wheels. However, it was made in close cooperation with SP. 
The finale has lots of action as the private car, uncoupled from the 
train, rolls down hill over bridges and through freight yards. One 
interesting thing. As the car uncouples on the fly the film is 
flopped so that the forward car's road name is mirror writing. Looks 
like SP didn't want its name associated with such an action.
