This film is essentially "Railroadin'" but without sound.
28 February 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The second Our Gang comedy to feature sound was "Railroadin'"--and it wasn't a particularly good film. It featured some insane parenting, poor sound and was in no way an improvement over this original picture. While "The Sun Down Limited" isn't a very good film, it is a bit better than the remake.

The film begins with Mickey Daniels and Joe Cobb hopping rides with two railroad engineers on their trains. However, when the two engineers leave the train to take a quick break, Joe and Mickey hop aboard and take the train for a spin!! In the process, they nearly run over a black member of the gang--who seems to be a bit of a racist cliché (with pickininny braids flying up in the air when the kid is frightened). It all seems pretty limp but might be of some interest to fans of silents and those determined to see each and every one of these Hal Roach Productions!
