Is there any one of us who doesn't recognize this image from the b&w years of the Adventures of Superman? In past years, readers of The Adventures Continue contributed some history to this image. And now Vince Marzo believes he has discovered the exact location where the train was filmed.
Jim, I am sending photographs that show the actual location where the scene was filmed. The location of the film site is just south of the Chatsworth Depot, below Lassen St. However, this is a locked/secure area now.
Looking at the track curvature, the pepper tree on the right side of the tracks, and the contours of the hills in the background, I'm convinced that I'm right. But please ask other readers to take a look and see what they think. [Vince Marzo, October, 2007]
