It was mentioned in a 1950s Billboard Magazine that the Greyhound reopened late in the 1956 season after a major rebuild. It may have been in a SBNO (Standing But Not Operating) status prior to the rebuild.
The Greyhound was seen in all three "'Smokey and the Bandit" movies staring Burt Reynolds and Sally Field. Even though the Greyhound was not operational it was repainted for the movie. In the original 1977 Smokey and the Bandit it was shown in the background. It was destroyed in the 1980 sequel, Smokey and the Bandit II. In the final 1983 Smokey and the Bandit Part 3, the Greyhound appeared in flashbacks.
