    HOLY JUMPIN CATFISH! As I was typing about "Runaway Train", some of those memory synapses started firing in my head, and I got flashes of Ernest Borgnine, dressed as a conductor, swinging an axe or something, at someone in a battle on top of a train. I think he was some ruthless conductor that wouldn't let hobos on his train....something like that. Anyone remember the flick? Was it good, ( I seem to remember liking it), but that was many years ago.

    Sorry dude, can't help you here. Couldn't resist making the joke. Why don't you put in a search on the IMDB. Maybe that'll help.

    Emperor of the North Pole it is, with Lee Marvin, Keith Carridine and Ernest Borgnine. Great movie. Never released to domestic LD although there's a Japanese import which always brings big bucks on Ebay.
