Synopsis

"Starlight Express" is a nine year old boy's dream. In his dream, his toy trains come to life for a spectacular race across America. The competition between steam, electric, and diesel engines is fast and fierce with entries from France, Italy, Russia, Great Britain, Germany, Japan and the U.S.A. In the end, the underdog Rusty, a small steam engine with a heart of gold, wins the race.
