Trivia

The only siding long enough to allow 1206 to dodge the oncoming runaway is a "rip track". A rip track is a siding on which equipment can be parked for maintenance/repairs that don't require it to be taken to the shops. "Rip" is an acronym for "Repair In Place". See more »

Goofs

Attempts were made to mask the reporting marks of the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway, where most of the movie was filmed. However, locomotives sporting the "Wheeling & Lake Erie" name are visible in at least two scenes. The first is in the background in the turntable scene in Brewster, Ohio, and the other is behind Dewey and Gilleece as they are entering the yard office to tell Connie the bad news about 777.

The film Unstoppable
30 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not a bad Tony Scott film but I don't think it was the best of all best films. All of those Tony Scott movies nowadays are like commerial like mainstream films. Denzel Washington and the young dude from Star Trek, not a bad cast. It was okay. The movie is interesting in certain levels and the storyline is okay, it should be integrated into a scary film. I love scary movies in fact, I've been writing screenplays since I was a teenager and I'm planning to make my own films as well. But the film is okay I think Denzel and Chris Pine should team up together and do two more films together. The next one is a detective film and the other a drama.
