WHEELS Museum, 1100 Second St. SW

Reservations required

Phone: (505) 243-6269 to RSVP


Dr. Ronald Lah of the Wheels Museum with a group of local history reenactors will present the program. It will include:


• Screening with discussion of the 1903 film, “The Great Train Robbery,” and the “Lawmen Train Cars” that were developed for rapid deployment after a robbery.

• Discussion of the historic Socorro and San Marcia, New Mexico train robberies, and the accuracy of train robbery depictions in movies like “Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid.”

• Reenactment of an Old West train robbery staged in and around the Wheels Museum’s train coach car - which itself is part of cinematic history, being made for a prequel to the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" - and conducted by history reenactors in period outfits. 

• Donors to the Wheels Museum Fundraiser are encouraged to take a seat in the train coach and present your donation when the "Train Robbers" go through the car. Visitors are encouraged to wear some period style Old West apparel like bowler and feathered hats and bonnets, pin-stipes, vests, and boots. 


Only non-functional firearm props will be used in the re-enactment.

nov 3 movie killers

RCA Movie Group November 3

Dear movie fans,

Jim and Helen Marquez will host our next movie night.


The show is "Killers of the August Moon" , a film based on the true story of the Osage murders, oil, land, and the creation of the FBI.


The movie opens in Albuq. on October 20, so we would like to host on Friday, November 3rd, to allow a little more time to view the film. If you have time, read "Killers of the August Moon, by Daniel Gramm. It is an unbelievable true story that you will not forget. 


Let Helen know if you will attend at   [email protected] or at 



Thanks, Helen
