A waste disposal company has a Russian nuclear bomb to transport, and an employee decides to save money by concealing it on a freight train. The train, also loaded with hazardous and flammable chemicals, suffers a brake failure and becomes a runaway heading for Denver. A wreck would be bad enough, but much, much worse if the bomb goes off. A heroic NTSB investigator boards the train; he and the railwaymen try various ways to stop the train, but nothing works. Meanwhile Denver residents are struggling to collect their families and then leave town, despite rioters and gridlock. Will the train have to be derailed to stop it? If it does derail, will the bomb explode, and if it does, what then? Written by
As of 2012, the lead locomotive that pulled the runaway train in the movie is still in use, now owned and operated by the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern Railroad and renumbered as MHWA 2042 (when owned by BC Rail, it was numbered 642, the same number it had in the movie, though it was painted with a fictional "WestRail" paint scheme.)

As noted by several characters, there were mountains between Denver and the derailment site. This would have protected Denver from both the shock wave and fireball from the nuclear detonation. The real danger would have been the fallout from the ground burst, depending on the direction of the wind at the time. See more »
I thought the first half of the movie was good enough for a TV movie once you get past the impossible premise. I look at the second half of the movie as two hours of my life I will never get back! The movie is worth renting for the family for a few dollars just so you don't have to sit through all the commercials (it comes to video on Sept. 21). Watch the first half, then turn it off and you'll be O.K., but if you're looking for a high-quality movie, though, you'll need to keep looking.
