Just finished watching one of my Steven Seagal VHS tapes, and if you haven't seen it, it deals with coal mines in Kentucky. I know a bunch of it was Hollywooded up, but the song at the end talked about the Newlenburg county, and the "Peabody" coal train. It also showed some nostalgic photos. It sang about the times in a negative sense, which most of Hollywood movies are liberally toned anyway. Was just curious if anyone knew anything about this filmed area, how much truth there was to the song. :?:
