The Runaway Train is the 27th produced episode and the 27th broadcast episode of the British television series Supercar.


Dr. Horatio Beaker and Rudolph Popkiss are aboard a new atomic powered train, but danger is soon near as they learn that Masterspy and Zarin have sabotaged the reactor which will cause the train to crash. Mike confronts Masterspy with Supercar, but he tells him he cannot stop the train. When all seems lost, Mike is able to swoop over the express and using a new magnetic grab device, together with the Supercar's mighty engines, is able to bring the runaway train to a halt. Beaker is saved by his own invention.
