The number boards above the cabs for locomotives 777 and 767 were not originally there prior to the movie. They were added to give the locomotives a more menacing appearance. See more »
Conductor side of 777 shows ditch light & handrail damage after hitting horse trailer. Handrail was completely bent from steps toward center. Final scene shows no damage to handrails as character grabs on and climb steps. See more »
Do not believe the 7/10 hype on IMDb. The only explanation is that half of this films budget (which by the way couldn't possible exceed 100.000 USD) was spent on bots posting good reviews. This film is one of the worst I've seen. Ever.
Why not place several trains ahead? Why did not the driver of the train ahead simply walk over to the Runaway Train and pull the brakes himself? Why not drive beside the train and push the button (the one the policemen tried to shoot(!))? Why not dumping sand or similar in front of the train? Why not ... well, remaster Runaway Train instead of filming this disaster?
