The film entitled Runaway Train is about adventures of Manny and Buck. Manny is a merciless bank robber who is well known at the prison for his waywardness. Manny is always busy planning his escape from the prison. He had tried to escape twice in the past, but failed. Buck on the other hand was found guilty of rape and convicted. While in jail, he works in the laundry room. He is assigned to secretly convey Manny out of jail in a laundry trolley. Buck accepts to do so and decides to run away with Manny. After crossing a river by swimming through, Manny and Buck jump into a train. The warden who was in charge of watching after them at the prison sets out to recapture them and take them back to jail.

As soon as the train starts moving, the engineer has a heart attack. He tries to stop the train to no avail but instead set the train to a nonstop position, destroying the brakes and making it impossible to stop the moving train. However, Manny and Buck as well as the other people on board the train are not aware of the situation. Sara who is one of the railway workers on board is fast asleep.

The train continues moving. When the speed increases, an official at the train station known as Frank receives a signal about the situation. He tries to control the train by use of computer programs but fails.

Sara wakes up and realizes the engineer is dead. She presses the horn and this alerts Frank that there’s someone in the train. Frank and his team try to stop the train to no avail. Back in the train, Manny, Buck and Sara try to halt the moving train. By then, warden Ranken is aware that his convicts are escaping via a train and catches up with them.
