Visit Part 1 Of This Tour

We start with the EMD Atlantic Coast Line GP-7 #1804. This diesel-electric locomotive was produced for the U.S. Army Transportation Corps, and then served on the Alaska Railroad as #1834 for most of its working life, later renumbered to #1804.

After working in Alaska for many years it was sold to the Santa Clarita Railway where it was used in the filming of Under Siege 2: Dark Territory with Steven Segal as the lead locomotive on the train around which the film was centered.

I took the chance for a cabride to share Steven's experience :)

The next few pictures show some inside photos from different passenger cars. It was fun to sit on those old chairs and get some memory and feelings of the past. Be sure next time when I visit that beautiful museum, there will be more pictures.
