    Threat and horror

    There are scenes of mild threat, including a person falling from the back of a train before they are caught, a train skidding about on breaking ice, and a puppet seeming to come to life and scare a boy. Scenes of threat are swiftly resolved.There are sequences in which people walk on top of the roof of a moving train. However, the context within which this occurs is very fantastical and difficult to imitate with modern trains.
