Death on the rails
17 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** It was out of towner attending a furniture store convention Ben Springfellows, Paul Hartman, misfortune to get himself sloppy drunk and end up taking a cab for reasons known only to himself to the West 72nd street rail-yards in Manhattan. It's there that Ben is spotted by rail-yard security guard Al Buxley, Roger C. Carmel, who in trying to get himself into tip top physical shape uses Ben as punching and karate practice thus brutally killing him.

With the police on the scene later in the day Buxley tells them that he saw a Hells Angel type dressed in heavy leather and riding a Harley flee from the scene of the killing. This is pure BS in the mind of the NYPD Det. Adam Flint, Paule Burke, who in looking up Buxley's record sees that the guy, a deranged as well as health and exercise freak, had done things like this before where he worked over a fellow employee, but not killing him, that had him fired from his previous job.

***SPOILERS*** Setting a trap for Buxley Det. Flint disguised as a derelict and drenched with booze has him, seeing an easy mark, start to work what he thinks is the hapless and dead drunk Flint over. Buxley doesn't get that far with Flint's partner Det.Frank Arcaro, Harry Bullaver, and the NYPD springing into action and putting Buxley on ice as his reign of terror on the rail-yard came to an end with him ending up the final victim of it.
