AWVR 777 is the main antagonist of the 2010 action/thriller movie, Unstoppable. It was a runaway train carrying hazardous chemicals from Fuller Yard towards Stanton, Pennsylvania. Courtesy of the heroic actions of rookie conductor Will Colson and veteran engineer Frank Barnes, the train was stopped before it could cause any fatalities.

Behavior and history Edit

Little is known about AWVR 777s history and what it did before the events of Unstoppable.

Trivia Edit

  • Elephant sounds were mixed with train noises to make 777 sound more menacing.
  • During development, 777 was nicknamed "The Beast". Denzel Washington uses the nickname in a behind-the-scenes interview. [1]
  • It has passed three junctions without derailing.
  • It is one of the most inaccurate runaway train movies. It's majorly inaccurate in several ways. The most common problem being the fact 777 can be stopped no matter what is done. This is very untrue as in reality CSX 8888 ( the train that inspired the creation of Unstoppable ) was hard to stop, but that doesn't mean that the train was impossible to stop!
  • There are several major problems with the movie's information:

AWVR 777 travels almost 75 mph despite the fact it was carrying 39 cars which should have it struggling to even reach 50 mph.

No train could produce a sound effect with it's engine.

777 is treated as a sentient locomotive though it's just a runaway train.

It passes three junctions that would have and should have derailed it immediately.

It derails a lash up even though it was travelling on the same track as the lash up. And it is not possible for any train to jump a switch no matter how fast it's going.

An engineer is not to leave the cab at all and would have been arrested for doing so since it risks the train being a runaway. And a locomotive should not accelerate on its own nor should it be able to and trains can't accelerate that quickly since most of them are carrying hundreds of railroad cars.
