Default Best EVER train scene in a movie!

For those of you who haven't seen it (you know who you are), I present this to you...



The fun starts around the 2:30 mark.

I love that show. A very interesting thing about that show is the author is from northern Minnesota, close to where I love. Many of the characters in that movie are actual Minnesota town names. The main character is Cass Lake... I live in Cass Lake, Minnesota. Bagley, Orono, Hibbing, Goodhue, among others are all Minnesota town.

The train scene is A+.

Best laugh in a week! Thanks Jim.

I'd like to see the prop vehicle that was used to do the off road chase. While it must have been some large truck with a locomotive shell, the art department sure got the dimensions and look right.

i love the scene from the movie called "CLICK" with David hasselhoff when the other guy uses this remote to pause him and he farts in his face. I'm laughing just thinking about it....

Is that how steerable trucks work?
