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. Only Farina escapes from the train, but he gets his foot caught in the tracks, directly in front of the speeding locomotive. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

The Little Rascals and Laurel and Hardy
13 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Hal Roach must have been the richest man in the world in the 1930's. He struck gold with Laurel and Hardy, and he reinvented 'Our Gang' as 'The Little Rascals' in the sound era at the same time. 'Railroadin' was a symbol of this dual success, and is the reason why all budding producers need to take notice of his 702 films.
