In circa Spring 1986 I was employed as a Locomotive Engineer for the Southern Pacific Railroad, based out of Taylor Yard in Glendale. One day I got called from the Engineer’s Extra Board to work as a Fireman on a “Hollywood Train” in Taylor’s Reefer Yard for the filming of the Touchstone movie, Tough Guys. I was warned beforehand, that I’d be “working” on an old steam engine (SP4449), of which I knew nothing about – I was showing up to satisfy union requirements. As it turned out, I worked the job for several days, sitting in a beach chair and eating every time the film crew ate. The train set did very little actual moving; I did a lot of eating.

Two elderly gangsters are released from prison only to find they have trouble fitting in as old men who still take no guff from anyone. Does anyone still rob trains?
