    Any camera guys wanna explain this shot? it’s pretty cool.

  5. Thelastminstrel says:

    reverse the film, the start of the shot is a close up of Keaton, the train reverses from the camera, then you run the film backwards

    well, you got me there, I don’t know. I think they must have run the engine dead slow up to the camera, other wise you couldn’t stop a couple of hundred tons that cleanly.

    Locomotive at 2:15 is a pretty rare bird- a 3-cylinder engine with the center connected to an offset crank journal. Not many made and not for long. It had an unusual-sounding exhaust.
