There's been several great films featuring runaway transport: Taking of Pelham 123 (both original and remake), Diehard 2 and of course,my all time favourite, Speed!
Die Hard 2??? Not quite runaway

I was just reading about it supposedly being based on true events, all I could find was .........

Two of the train's tank cars contained thousands of gallons of the hazardous material molten phenol acid, a toxic ingredient of paints and dyes harmful when it is inhaled, ingested or comes into contact with the skin.

"The public was never really in jeopardy, other than we had a train that was sort of out of control for about two hours," Hosfeld said.

and

"We're just all happy that it ended without any injuries. That's always the number one issue for us: Safety first," said Corry Schiermeyer with the Federal Railroad Administration"

So, nobody was in danger, nothing got broke, nobody died, the fastest speed it reached was 47 mph, and it was barely a blip on the national news.

If think it looks good, but if the story is not up to scratch there is always the eye candy ;)
Preferred Cinema's now Paignton or Exeter!

On second thoughts, yes, perhaps Die hard 2 is more runway than runaway!

Could someone please tell me if I need to p*rchase a Daily Mail to confirm entry to Unstoppable? Over on Moneysavingexpert it says I do, but there isn't any mention of it here? I'm hoping that I don't! Thanks for any help. OMRxx

Well, from my own personal experience it's no - I once b*ght a copy of the Daily Mail because it said I had to on one of my free tickets, but they certainly didn't ask for it when I went to the cinema. Like it says bring I.D. but they never ask for it. :D

Member number 33 of the "100 free films in 2011" club. I saw 20, interestingly enough. My more realistic target was to see more free films than TheyCallMeMrGlass. I lost.

Lovely, thanks everyone. I was thinking I might have to take a stroll to the local shops to b*y (its just above the u, what can I say???!!) a Daily Mail but that has saved me that bit of exercise! Thanks for the replies-I've got tickets for the whole family so should be good.
