Glen Eigo has sent us a report, this may be considered a spoiler so the text has been hidden, to reveal the details simply highlight the text:
I was at the Essex Steam Train in Connecticut today with my wife and son. There were signs going up for Bedford Train Station and Western Union.
Essex Steam Train is a tourist attraction with an old steam engine that generally brings tourists and sightseers up and down the Connecticut River Valley. The train travels up to Deep River Connecticut to let passengers off to ride the Beck Thatcher River boat up the Connecticut River.
There were Genre Productions crew members all over the site checking things, hanging signs, and painting the train station. There was also a company supplying tents and some signs directing crew members where to park.
Anyone who wants to see the production being set up should probably travel over there today or tomorrow morning. The layout of the area would make it difficult for the crew to completely seal off the area as there are multiple ways to approach the facility.
And to continue our theme of posting ridiculous amounts of 1950’s New Haven imagery, here are some excellent new links.
Firstly, The Movie Scorecard has an excellent picture of the motorbike being used during filming and they claim to have some big news coming soon, we’ll have to wait and see!
Our reporter in the field Mitchell Hallock has also reported sightings of George Lucas on set in New Haven.
