A long search was made to find working steam engine for Sarah's arrival. One was found at the Sturh Museum in Grand Island, Nebraska. The train was built in 1908 by the Baldwin Locamotive works. Unfortunately, the train needed extensive repairs before it's fires could be stoked. A timely contribution from the Sarah, Plain and Tall (1991) production saved the day. However, the train has been preserved and is on display at the towns museum. See more »
Seal was worried. The house is too small, we thought, and I am loud and pesky.

Nice little movie about life in the Prairie and about how a young widower can make a new life, and how his two children can relate to a new women coming to their home to "replace" their mother. No clichés (there could have been scores of them), sensitive story, good casting. Never before that movie had I sensed how Kansas and Maine, two states in the same country, can be so far apart, geographically and culturally.
