Bob,
I'd be lost without my Western channel. That eats up some of the hours in my day. Wink
And now, with the ability to record the Westerns on TV for later viewing, I'm in "Western heaven". Cheyenne and Maverick are two series that I currently record.

Many of the old western movies have train scenes. I recently watched  "Kansas Pacific" with Sterling Hayden, the entire movie was about building a railroad across the plains. Of course it wouldn't be a western movie without the bad guys blowing things up. The Engineer's name was "Smokestack".

I don't think the fireman's name was mentioned, anyway he was shot in the end (of the movie that is).  Smokestack just got a minor flesh wound.

Ah yes what a wonderful old movie! I have it on DVD, Being I  reside in Kansas and travel its highway system daily, I am amazed at the mountain scenes Grin they slip in. I am still searching for those mountains! BTW The Old Kansas Pacific right of way is still being used by the Union Pacific RR It runs along old US 40.
Bob You sir are a jewel! Thank you for your expertise.

Seems like most of the Western series had a train in at least a couple episodes.

Thank you. I am a former Jayhawker, born on a farm near Mayetta. I found those mountains you're looking for, since 1980 I have lived in the Yampa Valley region of Colorado. 

My layout is "Yampa Valley Railroad".  Pictures at this site were taken near here.

Where do you live?  My Grandkids (and Great Grandson) live around Tokeka and Wichita.  How about getting hooked up with email? I have lots of pictures.  Cool

Hello Yampa Bob,

I didn't know you were retiring.

A bit off topic here, but I saw the neatest thing last Thursday.  While playing golf in Cuero, Texas, I saw what looked like a brand spanking new Union Pacific passenger train going thru.  What a sight it was.  I don't have a clue where it was coming from or where it was going.

Bob I'm a newcomer here too sort of, but I like your common sense and easy as you go approach to fixing things. Because of that I somehow thought you were from the south. I too would like to call you  my friend.

I remember another poster was bashing you pretty harsh, but you kept your head and didn't return bashing, you kept your head and that makes you a real man and a leader! Jim
