An out-of-control, unmanned train, carrying a load of toxic waste? That's the thrilling (and surprisingly real-life) premise of Denzel Washington's new movie 'Unstoppable,' which opens Friday.

All aboard for our list of the 10 Most Suspenseful Train Movies ever made -- and a few over-the-top action sequences.
