A&A in Hollywood

Postby howie729 » Tue Jul 01, 2008 6:23 pm

From what I have heard the Arcade and Attica has been chosen to be in a movie! I don't know many details. From what I have heard the setting is the great depresion which makes the 1920 steam engine right for the part. I have been trying to find more info on this but not much available at this time. If anyone knows more info....Spill!

Film crew may jump aboard A&A Railroad for movie
ARCADE -- The Arcade & Attica Railroad is used to the spotlight. It was one of the first railroads nationwide to focus on steam-powered tourist trains. So it's become well-known in railroading circles and among Western New Yorkers.There's a chance the railroad could gain far greater exposure this summer.

If those Hollywood types pay for a new pullman green paint job for those coaches, I'll be there in a heartbeat!
