Having lived in Walla Walla County, I can't blame the rail car for trying to escape.

Not a bad movie, though over-dramatized.

Says a lot about that area where a runaway rail car can go for miles at around 50mph and threaten farkall.

BizarreMan: Having lived in Walla Walla County, I can't blame the rail car for trying to escape.


I can imagine living there isn't all that great, especially years ago...but visiting, drinking some good wine, hopping across the border to get $1 tacos and then sitting outside a vineyard smoking some weed....it can be pretty fun.

That's pretty impressive from a physics standpoint. Sure, it was rolling downhill, but there was so little friction that it kept going.

I remember this being an impress example of Dolby surround when it first came out in 1985. I think I'm going to have to watch it again.

I got one look at the pic... uh, farkers, that was a tank car. Nothing tells us what was in it.

Do not want a runaway tank car with, say, molten sulfur, or hot asphault, or....

If you click on the link, there's a better video of someone keeping up with the car along Hwy 12 for a while. News reports initially said it was a tanker loaded with gasoline. Eeek.
