As long as we're working on "Ticket to..".
Henry "Hank" Phillips did fire RGS 20 on "Ticket to ..". He was paid $75 per day. He also was a stand-in for Arthur Hunnictt, who played "Sad Eyes", the fireman on the "Emma Sweeney".
Hank thinks that Walter Brennan, got $1000 per day. Personally, that figure seems low to me. Brennan was the engineer of the Sweeny. The engineer on the RGS 20 was Vince Cummins.
As an aside -- Vince was to go 5 mph on the Highline bridge, but instead he went 10 -- more dramatic. The camera was on a platform out from the engine. Alva Lyons was the conductor on the 20. When he talked to me about the filming, he clearly had enjoyed himself greatly.
Incidentally, I've seen some write-ups asserting the 315 was used in Ticket. That is not correct.
Lastly, on DVD and VHS tapes of "Ticket..". There was an original tape release, but all the copies of DVDs or VHSs that I have seen over the last 5 years have been copies from that original release, or taped off the air. Ten years ago the AMC Channel did not have ads during the movies, so a tape from then does not have commercials. It would have the logo on the lower right. Having "artwork" on the cover does not mean the original tape release is inside. Reputable sellers do give the message that they are selling a copy made from a "public domain" copy. I am not a lawyer, but I suspect that even though the film may be in public domain, the video tapes, being made many years after the film's release, are still under copyright protection and so copying them is prohibited. It is so with photos of artwork.
Some time ago I bought a copy of "Denver and Rio Grande", which the seller said had not been opened, nor viewed. I thought, "how amazing", and paid a premium price. Upon arrival, the tape was certainly an original release, but had been opened and viewed. The seller said that he had bought it from a video-rental store which was going out of business. It had come to him wrapped in shrink-wrap. He, himself, had not opened the package, nor viewed the tape, so that he had not misrepresented the item.
Be very careful.
I am interested in other information about "Ticket .. " or other films which used the DRGW narrow gauge.
Enjoy.
