Remarks & Notes 
"Number 14, can we take them ahead a car length?" In a stroke of luck, with the conductor having requested to have the train pull forward to get off the circuit for the Central Avenue grade crossing, Fillmore & Western No. 14 tugs at the five cars on the drawbar as the engineer cracks the cylinder cocks and lets the 104-year-old 2-8-0 pick up the slack. The two locomotives on the left served as 'real' steam locomotives, though they are just full scale props, in the 2013 "The Lone Ranger." Though the movie didn't do well wooing western fans and railfans alike, some might notice a touch of another operating steam locomotive - Santa Fe 3751 - at some points during the movie as the production crew placed a microphone on the engine during its 2012 excursion to the Grand Canyon.
