The Indian Valley Railroad
The Indian Valley Railroad was the name of the fictional railroad line that ran in the children's show "Shining Time Station".
But the fictional line actually shared its name with a real railroad line, which ran between the Western Pacific Railroad at Paxton, CA and Engle Mine, about 20 miles northeast. (Right of way)
