I may be 21 but at the ripe age of four i was obsessed with this film ever since I saw it, it is by far my favorite railway movie of all time. The year it was made? 1932 and you thought newer movies blow you away?!? These guys were severely underrated for their time period:

I have the full movie taped on VHS and there were a ton of great steam scenes, this was the milwaukee road mountain route before they converted over to electric

I've had a VHS recording of "Danger Lights" since it was available in the 1980ies. It is one great railroad movie. Louis Waldheim, the star, was at the end of his career by the time "talkies" came along but he does a great job. He had played the German Sergeant in "All Quiet on the Western Front."

It is an absolute must for Milwaukee road fans.

That tug of war or push of war was awesome. Oiling a bearing st 60mph was pretty cool too.

me too. And something you may have missed, the engine pulling into Chicago had a different trailing truck than the one that was oiled. I thought the engine was supposed to be the same from start to finish on that high speed run.

now that i think of it, you're right and plus the scene where the fireman climbs out has to be at least 70+mph because even if its sped up to give it that look keep in mind a locomotive is alot bigger than a car, so when it seems like 40 MPH its actually 70
