    I have been trying to track down the name of a film that I saw many years ago. I apologize in advanc eif it is not an english film.



    From what I can remember there is a group of people who are trying to get out of a fort that has been surrounded and the last train has gone. However is there is an old steam locomotive left. They eventually get it working but there is a problem with its pressure valve, and ever so often it releases steam via the whistle. To stop this, they have a hammer handy, which they hit the valve with. this stope the release of steam / noise.



    On the morning of the 'escape' they run the loco silently at the fort doors, but as they are trying to make a silent escape, the faulty valve release ans the whistle blows.



    They finaly escape on the train, but further along the line they find the last train, where everyone on board had been murdered apart from a small baby.



    I would be grateful if anyone can assist in naming the film. Thanks
