Heres the original, not the remake:

What I remember most about the original was a very young Macdonald Carey and a very young Hume Cronyn in there.  That and the Uncle trying to do in the heroine with a period car in a garage via carbon Monoxide. 

FWIW, the Kenwood Depot is still for sale----looks to be in better shape than a couple years ago.

I didn't see it, but I've heard of it on this site. It has one of my favorite engines in it, so if I ever hear of it coming on TV, I'd like to see it myself. Don't have Hallmark channel, though; might be in a video store?

Hallmark Hall of Fame. Shadow of a Doubt. 1991 remake filmed in Petaluma.

Oh, so this is more contemporary and they actually fired up the units in the RR museum for the filming.  Ok, that makes sense.  Sorry I missed it.  Been here since 1987.

This was a remake, I think from the 90's.

You guys are confusing me (not that it's difficult).  The movie "Shadow of a Doubt" was made in 1943 (or 1942 when it was actually filmed).  That was a Hitchcock movie and of course 'starred' the Santa Rosa train station---we're talking steam.  Now the photo above has about a 1970 pickup in the picture so this is a lot later than that--and I don't think they remade the movie.  Even "Pollyanna" was filmed in 1960 (might have been 1959 if it was in theaters in 1960) used footage on the Sulphur Springs trestle and Hiway 29 bridge in St. Helena (and used the SP Depot there too) with a steam unit.

So I must be missing something here in this discussion.

The movie was called Shadow of a Doubt. They used four of the coaches which have been stranded up and down the line, and that engine is SP  #6051 from CA State Rail Museum.
