I remember a scene from a movie or TV show where a guy is walking on the train tracks and sees a trapped turtle. He bends to rescue the turtle and gets his foot stuck in the switching mechanism for the tracks as a train approaches. He uses his telekinetic powers (maybe for the first time?) to stop the train and get away. What was that show?


This is "The Man with the Power" (1977)

At first glance, Eric Smith (Texas-bred newcomer Bob Neill) looks like any anonymous public school teacher. But when this klutz absent-mindedly gets his foot stuck in a railroad track point, some hitherto unknown power manages to halt an oncoming train.
