Jeremiah Wilson is truly the Train Master of Williamette Western Railroad. He lives, breaths and eats railroad. When Brett Banner, the heir to New York Eastern, talks his dad into purchasing Williamette Western, there is immediately a clash between himself and Jeremiah. Jeremiah is fired by Brett two years from retirement and turns into an angry, depressed grandfather. When Brett's nine-year-old son, Justin, realizes Jeremiah's grandson, Thomas, can drive a locomotive, he kidnaps and holds Thomas' favorite dinosaur for ransom. Justin, Thomas and three other children board an old engine in for repairs and accidentally turn it into a runaway engine causing a chain reaction of events.
Jeremiah Wilson is the "Train master" of Willamette Western Railroad In Willamette, Oregon. The New York Eastern Railroad and Brett Banner make a deal to buy the WWRR. Brett assures the owner he will not let any employees go and will treat them fairly. With this new transaction the two men's families become intertwined because of the railroad.
Brett and his son, Justin, move to Willamette with a very arrogant and superior attitude. Justin must attend the same school as Jeremiah's grandchildren, Sara and Thomas. Together the three children get into some serious trouble that forces Brett and Jeremiah to work together to save the kids.
The children in this movie along with the viewers learn many lessons such as the importance of listening to the adults and staying out of trouble. Also, that being sly and conniving brings nothing good and tends to hurt others. Also the important lesson that honesty and kindness can take you further than stealing and bad behavior.
This DVD has suspense and action that the entire family will enjoy. This movie has been happily awarded our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal.

This is the first time that I heard of it. It sounds interesting. Maybe I should check it out.
