The scene in which Winston Link appears has not been released to television stations.
Link is best known for his pictures of steam trains on the old Norfolk and Western Railway , which were also shot in the fifties.
"October Sky" director Joe Johnston tells News 7 he used Link's photographs as a guide for what the buildings, the signs -- even the clothing should look like in the movie.
Johnston has admired Link's work for years. He says it was his idea to fly the photographer to the set in Tennessee for a scene with a steam engine.
Link, who's 84 years old, says the film crew shot five or six takes of his scene. And he says he had a great time doing it.

The impact of the crash tore off one wing and turned the plane's engine around with the propeller facing the body of the aircraft.
Piland was killed.
Witnesses said weather conditions were not good.
A dense fog blanketed the area; a mixture of rain and sleet was falling.
A rescue worker said ice on the wing and tail could have been what caused the crash.
The airport control tower supervisor in Roanoke said weather conditions at the time of the crash were not ideal. However, the weather was within the safe range when the plane took off.
Oddly enough, this was not the first weather- related crash in the area.
12 days before this accident, a couple FROM Newport News was injured in a small-plane crash.
Their plane clipped a power line in a snowstorm and flipped into a field.
It happened just 10 miles from the site of Montvale crash.
