This is a surreal little film about several children who befriend a potty old retired railroad engineer and end up actually breathing new life into an abandoned, rusting Pacific steam locomotive. The cast is excellent, though Mickey Rooney appears to be ad-libbing his lines. The final scenes are exhilarating and will stay with you, and that's a good thing. Recommended for all.
