Remarks & Notes 
Sierra Survivor. The Sierra Railway's legendary movie star, Locomotive #3 makes her charge up the hill from Rock Quarry toward the Jamestown Yard, hauling two heavy steel coaches on a special passenger excursion. With appearances in over 100 Hollywood productions, such as "The Virginian", "High Noon", "Back to the Future", "Little House on the Prairie" and "Petticoat Junction", the 1891-vintage, Rogers 10-wheeler you see here has beaten the odds and survived to become one of the most famous steam locomotives in the world. After over 100 years of hard work, she recently received a complete overhaul, including a new boiler, and is in fine shape for future generations to enjoy. She can be seen in at California's Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, where she pulls excursions on at least one weekend a month during the operating season. And yes, she really is as clean as she looks. She sports a gloss black and silver paint job, and the folks at Railtown always have their movie star ready for her next close-up.
