In the 1924 Harold Lloyd comedy, "For Heaven's Sake". Harold just bought a new Packard Phaeton and it is immediately commandeered by the police to pursue some bad guys. Right off, the crooks put numerous bullet holes into the expensive car, and it comes to a halt. The cops quickly commandeer a flivver and continue the chase, leaving Harold to deal with his stricken car. But as he tries to crank-start it, we see that it has come to rest on a railroad crossing. You can guess what happens...
The locomotive is a Santa Fe 4-6-2 Pacific type of the 1337 class, one of 52 engines originally built by Baldwin in 1911 as 4-cylinder balanced compounds. these were converted to 2-cylinder simple engines between 1922 and 1927. 1339 was one of the earlier conversions as it is seen here in 2-cylinder form.
The auto used in this shot is not the same one used in the previous scenes. It is a partial mock-up made to resemble a late model Packard. Apparently they didn't want to total a nice, new, expensive Packard (even though they did put several bullet holes in it!). The wheels are covered to look like discs, though they are really spoked. The brightwork seems to be painted rather than plated.
I slowed the action down to reflect the real-life speed. Director of photography Walter Lundin under-cranked the camera to add more zip to the shot, although the 1339 is going at a pretty good clip. I used the movement of the smoke and dust to indicate real time.
