As I watched the opening sequence of Giant, with a K1 acting as a C&O loco,
I wondered where it was repainted and lettered. Where did they photograph
the sequence? I thought the C&O still had steam locos in '56. Any photos of
it during the production of that movie?

As I locate film and video of N&W steam for my painting and weathering
'events' I can't find any of the K3's, and very little of the un-streamlined
