I hang out on a couple railroad-related forums and a lot of people, notably some pros, really groaned at the previews of the movie. The real Crazy Eights incident happened due to a series of faults not the least of which was multiple violations by the engineer and only involved a single loco, not "1,000,000 tons of steel". I suppose a movie was inevitable...actually, I'm surprised it took this long. Glad you had a good time though and I think I'll get it when it comes out on Netflix.
If you believe people should work till they die to pay for a government worker to retire at 50, you're a Democrat. Otherwise, you're a Republican. All other differences between the parties are trivial.
