Spring Railfest and the "24 Train"
Title:  Spring Railfest and the "24 Train"
Description:  Former CNW F7(A) lead the "24 Train" in a downpour in Fillmore, CA as seen from the eaves of the SP depot. This train set had been used in the opening scene of Season Four of the hit Fox TV show "24." It hit a truck parked on the tracks and exploded in a scene shot over by the Fish Hatchery. F7(A) #100 was originally delivered to the C&NW as their #4068A in March of 1949. It was rebuilt as a commuter engine in 1959 and renumbered to 409, before becoming Chicago RTA #409 in 1978 and then Metra in 1983. Later, it went to Rails Diversified, and then to Winchseter & Western, and then to Maryland Midland as their number 100. Shortline Enterprises (the owner of Fillmore and Western) acquired it from them.
