The C.P. Huntington Train Station: “All Aboard!” The historic C.P. Huntington Locomotive takes you on a tour of Old Tucson for a 15-minute journey into Old Tucson’s history.
Old Tucson is rich in western movie and TV history, with just a sampling of titles shot there including MCLINTOCK!, Have Gun Will Travel, Hombre, Bonanza, Death Valley Days, The Outlaw-Josey Wales, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, Little House on the Prairie, Gunsmoke, and of course The High Chaparral. Historical artifacts including one of Linda Cristal’s costumes are still on display at the museum. The streets provide an authentic backdrop of a Western town, and don’t miss The Reno, Old Tucson’s famous 128 year-old locomotive, which has more than 100 film and television credits including the movie remake of Wild, Wild, West.
