The 4-4-0 engine used in the movie the "Wild Wild West" staring Will Smith is named the William Mason (in real life).  It was called the Wonderer in the movie.  Strasburg did the rebuild/restoration.  
 
Filming for the movie was done out west (At least some of it).  They trucked the William Mason, and some Strasburg freight and passenger equipment out west (I believe Utah).  I passed the William Mason on a flatbed truck going down Rt 283 here in Lancaster, PA.  What a strange site!  I also remember seeing the repainted equipment at Strasburg before the move out west.  Of course, when everything was returned it was historically restored/repainted.  The William Mason was shipped back to the B&O museum and they now have an operating 19th century locomotive!
 
I tried to get to see the locomotive when it was test run at Strasburg, but it was a big secret.  When I saw it on the truck, I knew I had missed it.

WM734fan, those shots are excellent! I enjoyed every single one of them! Thanks for posting them.
 
RDG484, I believe WM734fan did not forget about the T1. Just take a closer look at the 7th one again.

Here are some shots I took during my visit to the B&O RR Museum today.  I took my wife's digital camera, only to find out that the battery was dead, so I ended up using my cell-phone camera.  Therefore, I sincerely apoligize for the p!$$-poor quality.  Here's America's first diesel:
