A truly great story. A modern fable. It was made into a Twilight Zone or an Outer Limits I think. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:07, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I'd bet this is based, at least in title, on the poem "The Hell Bound Train" but without a source and terrible laziness, perhaps someone else will clarify it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:04, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
