      Hi Sir Roger & James,

      I was reading your Looking at Lighting blog post about the train robbery sequence at the beginning of “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”. You mentioned that your gaffer needed over 2 miles of cable to rig the lighting inside the train.

      How did you all come to the decision to shoot the interior of the train on location (on an actual train), rather than creating the interior on a stage? I imagine it would be much easier to shoot in and rig a set with the practical lighting, rather than rigging the whole train. Regardless, the whole sequence looks great.

      I enjoyed the movie, it was full of fantastic and inspiring cinematography.

      Thank you!
