Sierra #3 Locomotive: <br />A Star is Born

Aug 29, 2012

Over a 90-year span, the legendary Sierra #3 locomotive appeared in more than 100 movies and television productions, including the iconic Westerns The Virginian (1929), High Noon (1952) and Unforgiven (1992). In its heyday, the oil-burning locomotive crisscrossed the country delivering lumber, but it eventually fell into disrepair, gathering dust and rust in a California rail yard. THE SIERRA #3 LOCOMOTIVE: A STAR IS REBORN chronicles the restoration of one of the oldest operating steam locomotives in the United States and the passionate restorers committed to bringing it back to life.
