Lyman H Howe's Famous Ride on a Runaway Train -- July 31, 2021


Moving Picture World, 23-July-1921

Lyman H Howe was a showman and a former railroad worker. He produced many short films. His most famous was "Ride on a Runaway Train," which he released in 1921. A print of the film turned up in New Zealand the the US Library of Congress restored it and synced it with a soundtrack disk. I see bits of the Mount Lowe incline, the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway and the Mauch Chunk Switchback Railway.
