I saw this delightful film 2 years ago and I have not forgotten it. In fact, if it were available on DVD I would buy it. Every few months, I check availability through IMDB. It's the age-old story of the struggle of the underdog, here in the context of an ancient steam locomotive about to leave the country, Uruguay, for California for a career of Disney or films. A small group fo locals, incensed at the disappearance of this historic icon, attempt to foil the sale.
