Killers of the Flower Moon… a road train

Killers of the Flower Moon is a book by David Grann that explores the murders of Osage Native Americans in the 1920s, a series of crimes linked to the valuable oil reserves beneath their land. The story uncovers a web of corruption, conspiracy, and the birth of the FBI.

It’s been made into a movie and it’s playing on Netflix and they’ve used a real train for the movie! Interestingly it travelled by road to the movie location site.

V&T train went by road


Watched the series on PBS last year, very good series to watch.

Bill, thanks very much for that. I didn’t know the V&T’s Robert Gray was involved until seeing this vid and the one that came up after.

I’ve ridden behind that loco a few times, out of Virginia City or Eastgate Station (where this was shot). Very cool to see all the details!!!


Thanks again Bill. Here’s the longer version.

I just sent it round to a few main V&T aficionados… they were probably involved in the project! But your post was the first I’ve seen on it.
