Riding the train
27 December 2019 | by moviereviewer99See all my reviews

Picked this up, because I LOVE Hallmark movies and I've always wanted to take a train across the U.S.

VERY enjoyable movie, actors and all.

The ending was a HUGE surprise...and NO, I'm not going to tell you what it was. It would ruin it for you.
