Not quite what I would have done, but interesting anyway--going to have to buy myself a copy. . .

Interesting. But I have yet to verify that this rather fantastic story even happened, or was just a tall tale of the Civil War.

"The Other Great Locomotive Chase" is just a work of make-believe creatively done using a model railroad and toy soldiers. I wonder what scale those trains were? S? O?

The trains look to be large scale models (No. 1 gauge), with locomotives by Hartland Locomotive Works:




Don't know about the cars, but considering some of the relatively unusual prototypes, plus the need to "destroy" various cars, suggests most of these may have been scratchbuilt. Not too big a job, not with plain box cars and flats as virtually everything else in the way of rail equipment.

Might be just a tall tale, but it still looks like fun, and it looks like its producer had fun with it, in spite of the difficulties he had.
