This episode was originally supposed to be a single hour, but the costs of shooting a moving train proved too high. Instead, the story was expanded to fill two hours, so that we could amortize the expenses and justify them for November "sweeps." Thus began a cycle in the mythology episodes of constantly trying to out-do ourselves, production-wise. I look at the location list for this episode and still can't believe we got away with it!
