Good against evil, nevertheless a good movie and one you should have in your collection.
29 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

The gear engine and operation of the log train make this movie a must see and have. It provides an examples of life and operations methods of a small logging operation and the underhanded means used to gain control of the RR and timber. The train operations couple the story line and characters. It is also interesting to see that even the hired thugs have some ethics.
