A must see for all Railroad Enthusiasts
22 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

The Wild Engine is a marvelous example of Early cinematography. The plot is a little hard to follow but basically It is about an excursion train of vacationers on a train pulling out of the station .Unbeknown to them back at the rail yard an engineer was knocked out of his locomotive by a wire that fell off of a yard light and his train is going down the track merrily by itself BEHIND the excursion train so the potential for a rear end accident is very real. Helen the new telegrapher who was just hired by the railroad receives word of this runaway train and gets orders to sidetrack the excursion train so the runaway does not plow into it then sidetrack the runaway before it gets to the drawbridge. how it ends ? Watch it at internet archives and find out
