|frightening||When three children go out to cross a bridge railroad, one boy almost falls. The scene when the conductor is taking the Hero Boy and Leader Girl back to the back of the train, after they safely get the train back on the task after it derailed, they walk through a room full of broken down toys, and a marionette controlled by the Hobo may frighten some little kids due to the worn facial features of the puppet. Several scenes of peril. When the back part of the train separates from the rest, it goes wildly out of control (not too intense however). Some characters can be scary looking. A character at the back of the train is a hobo and he can be frightening. A room full of dummies can be kind of scary. The movie is a must see for everyone and can be viewed by anyone old enough to understand the plot. Recommended for 5+|
