- The locomotive is actually 'Captain Baxter', a British locomotive from the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. It was modified with cowcatchers, a fake whistle, lamp, 'balloon stack' chimney cowl, etc. and weathered heavily. It hauled a Southern 25T brake van and a Mk1 coach for the film.
- During filming, things such as the silver American carriage side seen on-screen with 'Randy Stevenot' are actually props, as it was filmed on the Bluebell Railway.
- After filming, the modifications were all removed and the locomotive was returned to its original condition.
