The April 6, 1957 issue of Boxoffice ran a two-page article, with photos, on the East 50’s kiddie train, which was installed in 1955. The track included a tunnel in the screen tower, where the train was stored at night and during the winter. It was an “exact replica of the Baltimore and Ohio National Limited crack train. Since the East 50 is located in the bailiwick of the B&O yards, Harry Switow, owner of the theatre, received splendid cooperation from the railroad officials.”
