The Crossing

In 1926 the locomotive, called the General, plunged into the Row river in Oregon during the filming of a Buster Keaton movie. In the movie the train was stolen by Union spies and set on fire. The train scene on the bridge is the most expensive scene in silent film history cashing out at $42,000 in 1926 dollars. See a ghosted representation at the top of this print.
