Did You Know?


The corpse used for the girl at the end was the thought of late in production of the episode. The Conductor's corpse was redressed in the girl's clothes and a wig. It was going to be the actual actress but they thought it was scarier for her to become a skeleton. See more »

A train ride to hell!
9 March 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just recently watched this TFTD episode and it's titled "The Last Car" rightfully. I believe it was from 1986 season two. Anyway it's plot involves a young woman who's going home somewhere in the northeastern U.S. for the Thanksgiving holiday. Only from the get go this train seems different and strange, it starts late then when she boards the people seem so stiff and strange. From the quite old man to the odd little boy to the cold old lady this train has some odd passengers and strangely this track doesn't make any stops! This episode builds up well with suspense as little by little this young lady sees that this train is a train of no escape a death train of bags and bones! Overall good episode with suspense that gradually builds up before it frightens in the end as the end reality is grim it's a track trip of no escape!
