The film required obtaining a narrow gauge railroad of Civil War vintage. "Tweetsie" was the answer. "Tweetsie" is now a tourist attraction in Blowing Rock, NC. The owners gave Unusual Films full use of the antique steam engine. In the film, "Tweetsie" changes her name twice. She appears as the "Orange and Alexandria Railroad," and again as the "Virginia Central." In the film's final scene, the train was heavily draped in black for the last journey of General "Stonewall" Jackson's body. See more
