Victor Prescott, who's real name is Jim Waterman, modifies the computer controlling the railroad track (signals, switches, alarms) between San Francisco and Los Angeles in such a way that two trains are heading towards each other on the same track without anyone being able to prevent the disaster. He wants the railroad company to confess that there was criminal negligence involved in an accident some years before during which a derail caused several fatalities - including Waterman's wife and kids.

Reasons to love this movie
Its full of stars - the guy from star trek, the guy from ironside,
the guy from men in black its great to see all these 'stars' and to see how they were then.
Its got tension, excitement and the implausible ending (which any
classic disaster movie needs) -
Finally it has Lloyd Bridges reprising his role from Airplane - "Now, this is no time for coffee" What more do you need?
