What happens in Starlight Express?
Starlight Express is a delight for the senses that is entirely performed on roller skates, it follows Rusty in his quest for the crown (and an auto-mobile lady). One night, as a child lays sleeping, wheels spin and toys come to life, all helped by a touch of magic.
Three different engines are set to enter a race for the crown of ‘Fastest engine in the World!’. Enemies Greaseball (a haughty diesel train), and Electra (a brand-new electric engine poke jabs at Rusty, but with the guidance of the ‘Starlight Express’ legend, Rusty learns that he could triumph all along, all he needed was meet the victor within.
