On the TV show, Superman saved Lois Lane from a train in the last episode, and when the character resurfaced in the 1978 film Superman, a young Clark Kent (Jeff East) outraces a passing train whose passengers coincidentally, included  Kirk Alyn (a former Superman form the 1940s movie serials) and Noel Neill (who played Lois Lane in the 1950s TV series).
