'True Grit' train (and horses) arrive in Granger, Texas

One of the draws of Joel and Ethan Coen filming True Grit in Granger, Texas, was the railroad line that runs right next to the strip of wide street where much of the filming there will take place. Today the actual train to be used in the film arrived in town, attracting even more tourists. It's a beauty, with a coal tender, a Pullman car and a freight car attached.

Filming, by the way, appears to have been pushed one more day to Tuesday. The set looks very ready for action, and as you can see the security guards have arrived. I also noted a Paramount truck with New Mexico license plates! Bring on Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin. Guys, be sure and make a stop five miles down the road in Taylor for some barbecue while you're in the area.

The horses arrived Sunday as well...

Here are a few more shots from the street. You can find a whole lot more photos from the set here.
