"Escape From Limbo"
(1950's) PRR
One of the craziest railroad films of all time, "Escape from Limbo" is part Twilight Zone episode, part safety film that is just as entertaining as any half-hour TV show from the 1950's. The film tells the bizarre tale of Pennsylvania Railroad fireman Henry who apparently gets killed in a hunting accident. He ends up in Limbo where a Devil explains that he is now required to cause accidents on the railroad line -- in an attempt to gather other souls for his patron. This unique premise allows the filmmakers to show nearly all types of accidents, from switch weights dropped on feet to maiming and — death.

The film was directed by C.E. Gallagher from a screenplay by R.F. Maury, who incidentally also wrote an episode of the TV show "Sky King."
