End of the Line

Post by james1787 » Sat Jul 31, 2004 11:22 am

Anyone ever catch "End of the Line" starring Wilford Brimley? I remember seeing it years ago on TV. Something about a few railroad engineers who protest the shutting down of a railroad company. They "borrowed" a locomotive to take to the city where the RR headquarters was..

I have seen this movie a few times in the past but it hasen't showed up anywhere in quite some time. I like it and would like to see it again sometime.

Gentlemen-I can't say that I'm familiar with this one, but here a couple of links to the movie, including a decent writeup from Roger Ebert:
