How well do you remember the opening credits to Petticoat Junction?

Do you remember watching this little train roll down the tracks?

I remember as a kid in the early 70s I liked to see the 3 girls taking a bath on the big water tank.

Not a fan of the show, but it was sort of cute at times. I liked the little dog who ran after the train.
