  1. Any idea about the radio station location??

    1. The radio station as well as the parking garage (cut Joe Bob Briggs scene), the hotel room & corridor, and the interiors of Texas Battle Land were all filmed in the old Austin American-Statesman building which was demolished sometime after filming.

  2. We used to visit Prairie Dell Lake in the early 80s and moved to Germany in '85. I saw TCM2 in '86. We came back in '89 and spent two hours looking for the old park (had no idea it was torn down or used in the movie). The park had a train that went through tunnels; you can see the remnants in the outside nighttime shots of the Sawyer's hideout/lair.
