Storyline

The Our Gang kids are playing around the train yard where Joe's father works. Exploring one of the trains, they suddenly find themselves hurtling down the tracks with no engineer or other adults aboard.

Playin' On Trains With The Little Rascals
17 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews



An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

While playing in the train yard, Fat Joe Cobb, Farina & the Gang go RAILROADIN' in a runaway train, which none of them knows how to stop...

A funny little early talkie. Due to its age, some of the dialogue is difficult to hear. Highlight: Farina on the tracks. Fat Joe & Chubby are so obese it's painful to watch them.
