Railroad in Used Cars (1980)

Post by emd_SD_60 »

What was the railroad featured towards the end, during the car jumping scene? I own the DVD, and while listening to the commentary track, Robert Zemeckis said it was some private mining railroad. This movie was filmed in Mesa, Arizona and also around Phoenix. The locos looked like F-M's, they appeared to lack the railroad name and as for the numbers, I couldn't make them out. Does anybody know about this railroad, if it still exists, and the motive power?

BTW, there were some Southern Pacific railroad cars in the train, which means they're near SP territory... :-)
