Storyline

A waste disposal company has a Russian nuclear bomb to transport, and an employee decides to save money by concealing it on a freight train. The train, also loaded with hazardous and flammable chemicals, suffers a brake failure and becomes a runaway heading for Denver. A wreck would be bad enough, but much, much worse if the bomb goes off. A heroic NTSB investigator boards the train; he and the railwaymen try various ways to stop the train, but nothing works. Meanwhile Denver residents are struggling to collect their families and then leave town, despite rioters and gridlock. Will the train have to be derailed to stop it? If it does derail, will the bomb explode, and if it does, what then? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

As of 2012, the lead locomotive that pulled the runaway train in the movie is still in use, now owned and operated by the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern Railroad and renumbered as MHWA 2042 (when owned by BC Rail, it was numbered 642, the same number it had in the movie, though it was painted with a fictional "WestRail" paint scheme.)

Goofs

The chase train's lead engine is number 4920 on the side, but number 643 on the front (the front numbers are above the windshield, seen in only a few shots). See more »

When Rob Lowe is providing the best acting......
29 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

The whole movie is a nuclear bomb itself. It's three hours long! And it felt like three whole long days. This movie has a good concept, but a horrible delivery. There are way too many plot holes in the movie. It is so boring. The characters are all flat and one dimensional. While the lead actors are attractive, none of them are very talented. Kristin Davis, who is usually pretty good, is terrible here. It's not really her fault though, because her role was so unglamorous. Most of the other actors are also awful. Only Rob Lowe's performance comes close to being adequate.

One more thing, would you put a nuclear bomb on a train?!
