The song played in the background was Chattanooga Choo-Choo in case anyone's wondering. Thanks Fuzzy for another great rare find :)

This museum is still in the Baraboo/Wisconsin Dells area. I've been to it but it's been quite a few years. I remember that the ride was nice. It was rather jarring though in the film to see that the only women shown were tending flowers and giving the men lemonade. I hope they have female restorers/engineers/conductors there now!

Nice to see the early 1970's Chiron CG type (as seen around the 10:29 mark) in its unadulterated form prior to it being transmitted via the John Hancock Building to the millions of viewers tuned into Channel 9 on that morning. (And the spelling was different from what the company ultimately became - Chyron.)
