National Train Day
Today is National Train Day, and there's no observance of it where I live. We have an Amtrak station here, but they're ignoring Memphis except for a stop here at 10 last night on the way to a celebration in Chicago today.
But there's a celebration hosted over at Another Old Movie Blog that looks promising: Trains in the Movies. I found these lists of trains in film: this one is from the South Coast Railroad Museum; Trains Magazine has a list; Amtrak has a list of Top Train Movies.
