    Looks like a 3D animated movie set in the late 1940s and starring a train is coming out in November 2004.

    "The Polar Express"

    Looks like a children's movie (and its based on a children's book), but there should be enough steamheads here to be interested in it, though ya gotta wait a year.

    Tom,
    Its okay, you don't need the "I'm taking my son to see" to justify seeing the movie. I guess I'll be seeing it too; I'll be taking my son.

    Whoo Whoo!!!

    Beautiful artwork in the book, I think it won the Caldecot. The preview looks like it'll maintain that look and style. Can't wait! Same guy that wrote Jumanji.
