Baltimore & Ohio (Southern) RR Mikado type engine #4501 is Returning home on the 'Rathole', after movie work in Ohio.
Do you remember what movie they'd filmed?
Coal Miners Daughter? Not sure.
I'll bet that this was the engine used in Fool's Parade which was released in 1971. There was a B&O engine in one of the scenes pulling a passenger train. The movie took place in West Virginia in the 1930's, and I think parts were filmed in West Virginia. The movie had James Stewart, Kurt Russell, Strother Martin, and James Kennedy in it - pretty good movie!
I think you're right!
I've seen that one before.

I've been trying to remember that movie. Guess I did not see it.
