J.P. Bell of Fort Smith, a professional photographer, has documented the use of vintage trains in Hollywood over the past 30 years. Those photographs make up the exhibit “Cinematic Rails: Trains in the Movies,” which opened today at Cantrell Gallery, 8206 Cantrell Road. There will be a reception for Bell tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The above image, of the old Frisco Railroad between Fort Smith and Winslow, was made during Universal Studio's filming of "Biloxi Blues" in 1987. Other photographs capture the steam train from the Reader Railroad in "True Grit" and "Appaloosa"; the No. 1522 Frisco steam train in "Truman"; night shots using equipment of the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad at Fort Smith's former Frisco depot, and the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad in Chama, N.M., for a Super Bowl commercial.
