Storyline

November, 1916. Indiana Jones and Remy Baudouin have managed to get a transfer from the European trenches to the plains of Africa. On arrival they both receive a promotion to the rank of lieutenant in the Belgian Army. When they take the wrong train they end up in Moshi. Desprerate to join their unit in Lake Victoria, the two men bump into the 25th Royal Fusiliers, a unit of cranky old men led by Indy's old acquaintance Frederick Selous. Indy's passing knowledge of trains and fluent German comes in handy for the Fusiliers, who are about to go on a mission to find and destroy a Phantom Train that carries an enormous German artillery gun. After accomplishing their goal, Selous tricks Indy and Remy into joining his unit for another caper involving the capture of the German military strategist Colonel Von Lettow-Vorbeck.

A really great adventure!
4 April 2002 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

I really love the Young Indiana Jones videos, and this one is one of the best! I never used to watch them when they were a series but its been great to go back and watch them as feature films. George Lucas has just built the shows on such a great foundation with amazing locations, great casting and fun stories which are actually very educational because they are close to the truth. In The Phantom Train of Doom, Sean Patrick Flannery plays Indy probably the best in the series. Paul Freeman who plays Selous is great and well i might be biased but i just loved most things about this video. The only con i have with this movie and the whole series in general in fact is the abrupt endings they all have. but hey, we cant have everything!

anyway go out and get The Phantom Train of Doom because its a great Indy adventure and loads of fun to watch.
