"The Runaway Train is Universal's own nine-ton version of 'Casey Jones.'
You experience the menacing terror of a huge locomotive as it bears
down on each tram which dares to cross its path."
From "Inside Universal Studios", 1976
The Runaway Train (along with the "animated train engineer") played out it's fearful spectacle in the Denver Street area. For a particularly terrifying period, the train conductor was dressed as Mr T from The A Team during a park-wide promotion.
