    I just found this neat slapstick film of a replica Rocket. The engineer looks like Buster Keaton, but I can't be sure.

    Wow, the hazards of old time railroading. How did those coaches stay on track?

    Possibly running the train v-e-r-y slowly, and filming at a slow frame-rate. When projected at normal frame-rate the action would look normal...???
