Eric Roberts worked out for several months prior to filming to put on 30 pounds of muscle. Roberts has said that the characterization of Buck came easily to him as he had grown-up in a Mississippi neighborhood which was full of ex-cons. See more »
After colliding with the caboose of eastbound 12, Manny looks forward along the right side of the train and announces that all the hand rails are gone (torn off in the collision), yet for the rest of the film, all the hand rails on the right side of the locomotives are present and undamaged.

This movie is just brilliant. The Oscar Mannheimer character has to be one of the hardest moviecharacters of alltime. I love the way Voight turns mental on numerous occasions, he's doing one hell of a job. Arguably his best ever role. Eric Roberts is almost as brilliant in portraying Buck. I find myself laughing at so many times during the course of this movie. It's not only funny though, it's also a movie of high suspense and some action. 10 out of 10. I say YEAH!
