        With Unstoppable and The Taking Of Pelham 123 I am getting the feeling that Denzel Washington and Tony Scott have bad luck with trains.

                                      Don't bother just tearing up the track to derail a train. Instead set up a bunch of devices to turn into flying projectiles when they fail to derail the train.

                                        Why didn't Denzel keep both of the engines he was driving? 2 engines with brakes have got to be better than one.

                                          Guys who are responsible for a potentially catastrophic disaster still have the nerves to insult others who are trying to correct their mistake.

                                              When Judd Stewart pulled in front of the 777 for the lash-up, why didn't Ryan Scott just jump from the second engine onto the 777?

                                                          Hey, don't get sentimental on Frank. Makes him think he's gonna die.

                                                            Frank's only got one rule. One rule only: you're gonna do something, you do it right. You don't know how to do it, you ask him, all right? Likewise, if you need anything from Frank, you'd better speak up. 'Cause, uh, you're the conductor. Once you get our freight, it's your train. He's just the guy driving it.
