In fact, they've symbolized' the pro- .gress of'films-as they wheezed, or raced, past the milestones of time. . Edwin S. Porter's "The Great Train Robb/ry" brought to the silver-screen its first complete story. Broncho Billy Anderson played the Western lead while emotiog all over a limited • area of •; "wide-open-spaces" in an ersatz West bordering on .the outskirts' of Dover, New Jersey. * * »••-.' . • - • VV'HI '. .uElla Zumach ' ,*.*- • I".' : . * " "Movie budgets'being what Ihey were at the time, Broncho Billy also played just about every other character, too, except the locomotive.

From that time on, plenty of financing was available for motion picture pro duction. « «. t Throughout the followingyears, locomotives .were identilieu with truly great stories which have marked the amazing growth of films as a creative medium. From the parly Helen Holmes railroad thrillers, on up through John Ford's "Iron Horse," "Tr»e Atchisbn-Topeka & Santa ,Fe," and "Union Pacific," railroad yarns have enjoyed a full measure of popularity. — 'Now, 53 years after a' gasping public thrilled to its first train-Western picture, Walt Disney is making the epic train, thriller-diller of all time. He's re-staging the wild, fateful race between .the Union- manned "General" and the Confederate-manned "Texas," a hair- raising, no quarter, duel of the rails between two locomotives which resulted in the first awarding of the Congressional Medal of Honor, » » * Mrs Jeriy McVay .., .
