Movie Info

An official selection of the 2008 Kids First Film Festival, Phil Branson's gentle adventure Train Master follows a young group of children aboard a runaway train, and their parents' efforts to stop the locomotive before it runs straight into a nuclear cooling tower implosion. Jeremiah was a railroad worker who lived his life on the tracks. When wealthy East Coast railroad heir Brett Banner purchased Western Railroad and fired Jeremiah without a second though, the former lineman quickly fell into despair. Later, Brett's nine year old son Justin learns that Jeremiah's grandson Thomas can drive a locomotive, and kidnaps the dinosaur enthusiast's favorite prehistoric toy in order to lure him onto a train in need of repair. Brett's plan goes awry, however, when he, Justin, and three other kids accidentally set the train into motion, forcing Brett and Jeremiah to put aside their differences for the sake of saving the kids. Now, with the train racing towards a nuclear cooling tower that's about to be demolished, the two grown nemeses use their knowledge of the tracks in order to prevent the situation from spiraling into disaster.
