Everett L. Rohrer - Find a Grave Anyone remember Everett Rohrer? My dear friend passed away in 1998 at the ripe young age of 91. Everett was the owner of Steam Engine # 75, built in 1907, by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. It was a 2-8-0 class, serving the Great Western Railway in Loveland Colorado until 1965. Everett leased the locomotive to Hollywood, as it was used in about 30 movies in as many years. Old # 75 was featured in such films as "Cat Ballou" where Everett was listed in the credits as the Train Engineer with Lee Marvin and Jane Fonda, as well as "The Professionals" starring Burt Lancaster, and Lee Marvin. Other films involving Old # 75 included "Breakheart Pass" 1975 with Charles Bronson, "Far and Away" directed by Ron Howard in 1992, as well as "Geronimo", filmed in Utah in 1993.
