The train in the opening sequence of the series was shot at Secaucus Junction, in Secaucus, NJ. It was filmed out of the back of the train as it headed northwest, then the film was reversed, making it appear to be heading towards Newark. That is why traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike (running parallel to the right, with Laurel Hill in the background) is moving backwards. See more »

That Girl was designed around Miss Thomas and her personality /charm/ looks and timing made the show . Throw in Mr. Bessell,Lou Parker Bernie Kopell and a cast of many future stars and you have a show which holds up 40+ years later> Funny/poignant/warm/sensitive and in last season became relevant with current topics> Nobody doesn't like something about this show and most love it. If you had to pick a short list of shows from that era this would be on it. It was genuine and didn't pretend to be anything it wasn't. Every week had a fresh different episode,although to be expected some were better and some were in 2 parts]..Miss Thomas simply lit up the screen and captivated the hearts of young girls and the eyes of most guys ... They and myself simply couldn't get enough of her.
