After 7 years in Tucson, one would assume we've visited one of Tucson's "highlights" but today was our first time at Old Tucson.
Old Tucson Studios was originally built in 1939 for the movie Arizona. It has since been used for filming several movies and television westerns such as Tombstone, Three Amigos and Little House on the Prairie. Many of the props and custumes (such as Clint Eastwood's pants) that were worn and used in the various movies and TV shows are now on display in the museum.
The Reno Train: known as the most photographed locomotive in American history, it was built in 1872 for the Virginia and Truckee Railroad. This world famous locomotive worked Nevada's legendary Comstock Lode before becoming a movie star. Famous passengers and co-stars have included: President Ulysses S. Grant, President Theodore Roosevelt, John Wayne, James Stewart, Katherine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood and Elizabeth Taylor.
