I agree, pretty amazing in fact.  It looks very, very convincing.  The explosions are just about as good as the real deal.

That's the brilliance of Sergio's direction. The guy never failed us!

Of course Silenzio would know this information spending as much time around colliding trains as he does.

As one who list this film in my top five favorites of all time, I find it difficult
to admit that the colliding train scene was somewhat far removed from reality.
The "effects" were weak at best. When I watched it the very first time,
I was a bit dumbfounded and somewhat disappointed. Am I alone on this one?

Yeah you're alone. The effects at the time were outstanding and it still holds up today. A lot of CGI today don't look as real as this.

The train collide does look like a miniature in spots, IMO. Still better than CGI. The bridge explosion of course looks as real as it gets because they actually blew up a real bridge.

I thought the minature looked obvious but the good looking explosion made up for it.

To be honest with you Firecracker. I did not know it was a minature train before I found out here.

I meant an actual EXPLOSION.  But I actually have been colliding trains in my plot to overthrow Governor Butch Otter.

As far as the music goes--my album simply calls it : "After the Explosion."  I hear a bit of a mix of most of the music in the film.
