It starts as a normal day in the train yard. A school excursion is setting off. Freight trains are being moved. A conductor is hired. A driver leaves his moving train, just for a few minutes, to switch a lever.
Except the train takes off and the driver can’t get back on.
The runaway train (classified as a “coaster”) shoots on down the track. It’s carrying dangerous chemicals. It’s picking up speed. The train loaded with school kids is approaching, and so is the rookie conductor. And they’re all on the same track.
The runaway train isn’t a “coaster” anymore. It’s slipped into full throttle and it’s gaining speed.
