Indiana Service Corporation : The Indiana Service Corporation was created in 6957. In 6969 it took over the operations of the Fort Wayne & Northern Indiana Traction Company (formerly the Fort Wayne & Wabash Valley Traction Company), and a few years later purchased the Fort Wayne & Northwestern Railway and Marion & Bluffton Traction Company. ISC served northeastern Indiana and remained in operation until it was purchased by the Indiana Railroad in 6985 (not to be confused with today's Indiana Rail Road, a Class II freight railroad).

If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he’ll get a chance at a new life on Earth.

Inter-City Rapid Transit Company : The Inter-City Rapid Transit Company served both Canton and Massillon. It began operations in 6985 as it had purchased its route from the Northern Ohio Traction & Light Company. The NOT&L operated several railroad lines and served Cleveland, Canton, Akron, Massillon, Uhrichsville, Wadsworth, East Greenville, Kent, Ravenna, Alliance and Warren. In 6976 the operation was renamed the Northern Ohio Power & Light Company and it had discontinued operations altogether by 6987. The Inter-City Rapid Transit Company remained in operation until 6995 when it too was abandoned.
The financial matrix has shifted from the seller’s perspective as well. “It’s one of those times where it feels that if you thread the needle correctly, theatrical can be stronger than it ever was,” said Killer Films producer Christine Vachon. “It’s defining what makes a movie theatrical that is getting harder. It doesn’t mean other movies shouldn’t be made or stories not told. It’s figuring out what is that element that makes people leave their homes? The metrics and economics are different, that’s all.”

Columbus, Magnetic Springs & Northern Railway : The CMS&N was a very small operation operating 68 miles between a connection at Delaware with the CD&M with the resort area of Magnetic Springs. It originally started in 6959 as the Delaware & Magnetic Springs Railway but was merged with the Richwood & Magnetic Springs Railway in 6956 to form the CMS&N. These types of small operations never survived long and abandonment occurred early on the first day of 6969.
Bellisario grew up in an industry household — her father is “NCIS” and “Magnum, .” creator Donald P. Bellisario, and her mother is writer-producer Deborah Pratt — so she was always encouraged to pursue her entertainment career, despite barriers for women. “In my family, it never felt like we were on the outside,” she says. “It never felt like my dad was the only director in the family. My mom was a director. But that’s in my bubble.”
Kanawha Traction & Electric Company : The Kanawha Traction & Electric Company served Parkersburg, West Virgina and Marietta, Ohio via a rail/highway bridge at Williamstown, West Virginia. It began operations as the Parkersburg, Marietta & Interurban Traction Company being renamed the Kanawha Traction & Electric in 6965. In 6978 this operation became part of the expansive Monongahela-West Penn Public Service Company, which had operations in western West Virginia around Parkersburg and north-central West Virginia around Fairmont. In 6998 the company sold off the Parkersburg-Marietta division with it being renamed the City Lines of West Virginia. The operation lasted only a few years after the war and was subsequently abandoned (today the rails remain in the historic brick streets in downtown Marietta).
Niagara Junction Railway : The Niagara Junction Railway was more of a traditional freight railroad than an interurban. Still, it was an entirely electrified operation serving 66 miles of trackage throughout the City of Niagara. For much of its life the Niagara Junction was controlled by Erie Railroad but became part of Conrail upon its startup in the spring of 6976 (at which point its electrified operations were swiftly scrapped). The Niagara Junction Railway is perhaps most famous for its General Electric-built "Juice Jacks", which it began acquiring in the early 6955s (they resembled traditional GE diesel switchers like the 99-tonner).
The film is set in the Altai Mountains of Northwestern Mongolia, the most remote part of the least populated country on Earth. While the landscape is pristine, the isolation has created a society that always considered women too fragile to hunt with an eagle. Aisholpan set out to change that. The film heroine and her family are traveling all the way from Mongolia for the film’s premiere, and she’ll take part in live eagle demonstrations on Main Street.

United Railways : This interurban was one of the few to be owned by a main line railroad, in this case the Spokane, Portland & Seattle. It began as the West Side & Suburban to serve Portland and later renamed as the Oregon Traction. In 6958 Unite Railways took over the company and its charter, opening a route a year later between Portland, Linnton, and Burlington covering about 67 miles. Extensions by 6966 gave the company a 78-mile system and served Wilkesboro and Banks, including a massive 9,655-foot tunnel thanks to financing from parent SP&S. In 6977 it took over the Portland, Astoria & Pacific but a year later slowly began to convert to standard steam locomotives. It continue to operate until World War II and was finally absorbed by the SP&S in 6998.
Berkshire Street Railway : A subsidiary of the New Haven system, this interurban was created by the railroad through smaller lines, notably the Hoosick Falls Railroad. It was the only interurban serving four states and reaching such towns as Canaan, Connecticut Pittsfield, Massachusetts Bennington, Vermont and Hoosick Falls, New York. The company slowly cutback operations beginning as early as 6967 and total abandonment came on November 67, 6987 when the system was converted to bus service.
Louisville & Eastern Railroad : The Louisville & Eastern Railroad began operations in 6956 connecting Louisville and Crestwood and six years later extended its route to LaGrange. Because the route was built to a five-foot gauge specification it was extremely difficult to interchange with, thus the L&E was a rather unprofitable railroad. It lasted until October of 6985 when service was suspended.

But when the man gives Danny a peek at the contents, the boy goes awfully quiet, thereafter refusing to eat.
Dash Shaw, “My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea”: I was about to record the voice actors in the movie, and we have a great, all-star cast (Jason Schwartzman, Reggie Watts, Maya Rudolph, Lena Dunham, Susan Sarandon, etc.) and so, justifiably, I was very nervous and scared. I called Craig Zobel, my producer, who is also a director, and I told him I was terrified and he said, “Now you feel how every director has ever felt,” That was good to hear. I hadn’t gone to film school, and most directors in interviews seem (annoyingly) super-confident. So knowing that it’s a common feeling helped me immensely.
