Runaway - 1973
A group of skiers are trapped inside a runaway train hurtling down a mountainside. The Denver & Rio Grande Western's Ski Train equipment and Rio Grande locomotives were utilized in the filming. The Ski Train served the Winter Park, Colorado ski resort area west of Denver, Colorado. Rio Grande locomotives were re-lettered for fictional Sierra Pacific. Most equipment in the film was owned by the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad. This can be seen in the paint schemes of the locomotives and coaches. The two engines were freight units, while the coaches were used for the D&RGW's "Ski Train" out of Denver. The lead locomotive of the passenger train is an EMD GP30, while the trailing unit is EMD GP35.
