About the Movie
On April 12, 1862, a party of 22 union spies led by James J. Andrews stole a train from under the noses of 4,000 Confederate troops near Atlanta, Georgia, thereby beginning a race which might have brought an early end to the Civil War.
Love this movie
Please please let us buy this one. It's a fun movie and one made in the classic style of Walt Disney.
I remember watching this on the Disney Channel when I was a little kid (early to mid 1990's, if memory serves); it really got me hooked on trains (and the film's central steam locomotive, the General, in particular) and it's every bit as fun to watch now as it was then (The CinemaScope presentation - 2.35: 1 -certainly helps)!
I have watched this movie when I was five. Now I am fourteen and hadn't watched this movie since or even remembered it. If tjk3509 is reading this, i want u to know that I was thinking the same thing. This got me hooked up on trains too which makes me like traveling along them. The movie Stand By Me also not only inspired my railroad and train interests but the memories of good times, lord just being a ramblin man. Heh
