An old Western came on tv and a little surfing revealed this to be the featured engine.

Mr.  B, this would make a great model in two versions-  the modernized one shown here and an earlied-up version with diamond stack and cowcatcher to go with the early 4-4-0.

Full movie clip:

The engine appears in the first 5 minutes or so, a little later on in a ridiculous scene when a posse offloads from flatcars already on horseback with the horses jumping off without a ramp, and supposedly later on at the end.

Warning:  this is a REALLY TRITE Hollywood Western of the old school, probably one of the last. Every gimmick in the world.  Plus “Liberty, Texas “ is a real town, but it is not in the desert of West Texas but just east of Houston on the Gulf Coast prairie.

Executive summary:  beautiful train, terrible movie.
