No not the train but the movie. Has anyone seen this movie? Mekhi Phifer charter is a iner-city project Clocker(Drug Dealer). The thing is thou he loves trains.This seems kind of funny for what the movie is about. He has lionel train set-up in his apparment and a lionel train shirt he wears in one scene. At the end of the movie he finally gets to ride the train for the first time(amtrak on the superliners). But I think the symboylence of the train was the way for him to get out of the projects and move on in life. The whole movie isn't about trains but there are a few scenes they have them in. Overall this was a good movie and I would recomend watching it. Link at bottom for more info.
