Suddenly Prince’s eyes widen with
horror. A CAR is parked across the
access road, waiting to cross the track.
He shoots a look to the Engineer — the

BLASTING his HORN wildly, mouthing the
words: Bye Bye!
Prince screams like a MADMAN! He
twists his throttle FULL! He blazes

the road and fishtails wildly, locking
his brakes. The WALL comes at him like
a locomotive. He’s going to hit it,
knows it and…
He twists his throttle violently BLASTS!
directly into the path of the train!
The Engineer looks on in horror! Prince
throws his weight forward and…
…the train ROARS past him as he
fishtails wildly to a stop.
The Engineer sails off into the dusk,
his mouth agape. Prince sits there
breathing fiercely, the adrenaline
shrieking though his veins, watching
the train disappear into the distance.
