The last train ("El ultimo Tren" aka "Corazon de fuego") movie

For the filming was used an ancient locomotive managed by the Uruguayan Railfan Association, precisely the ANP 1. It appeared as the Locomotive: CT 33 (030-tender), a fictional number for the film. The machine actually used was an Orenstein & Koppel 0-3-0 without tender, owned by the National Port Administration and loaned to the real "Amigos del Riel".

This locomotive was painted No. 33 on the sides of the cabin, for the making of the movie "Heart of Fire", of which it was the main protagonist.

Runaway train
18 April 2004 | by jotix100See all my reviews

This nostalgic look at how unscrupulous people can do away with things and institutions long venerated by many, is at the heart of this film, which I saw in DVD format, since it has never had a commercial run in this country, to the best of my knowledge.

Director Diego Arsuaga has done wonders with this story about a bunch of older men, who are friends and all they have in common is their love for the steam trains of their youth. When they learn about the last locomotive being sold by the callous Jimmy to Hollywood, they rally against seeing their beloved, if a bit dilapidated locomotive, to be taken away from the country. They consider it to be a national treasure! How dare he?

This was an inspired cast that teams such accomplished performers such as Federico Luppi, Hector Alterio, Pepe Soriano and other great Argentine actors. Having seem them act in the theatre as well as in films, it was a real treat to see them interact so well together.

A feat no train lover should ever miss!
