And Richard Pryor.  And Jill Clayburgh.
In fact, most of the cast of that great picture are now sadly gone..... :mellow:


Not to mention Richard Kiel and the inimitable Patrick McGoohan (more as a director than actor).

The entire movie was filmed on Canadian Pacific equipment built for the Canadian. Most of the lines in the prairies it was filmed on have been abandoned.

But here is the roster for which cars were in the movie.

CP 4070-FP7A scrapped

CP 4067-FP7A still around in bad shape

CP 613-Now VIA baggage/dorm. Now VIA 8613

CP 14311 Burton Manor. Now VIA 8311

CP 14325 Elgin Manor. Now VIA 8325. Gene Wilder was in room C. Jill Clayburgh was in room D.

CP 118 coach. Now VIA 8118

CP 16517 Wascanna Dining Car. To VIA 8417 wrecked at Stewiacke, NS and scrapped

CP 14322 Drummond Manor. Now VIA 8312

CP 108 coach. Now VIA 8108

CP 15407 Kokanee Park. Now VIA 8707. It's not a prestige car so it'll either show up on the Skeena or the Ocean.

I've actually been in Elgin Manor (on one of my Canadian trips, obviously).  Boy, it'd be fun to call someone and say "Hey, I'm in Gene Wilder's room from Silver Streak!"


Amtrak mileage to date: Somewhere between 120,000 and 150,000 miles...I /really/ need to run all of my trips through a calculator sometime.

...and no, I am not /that/ Anderson...;-)
