Get my pies

I remember watching this sometime in the mid-80's growing up, it was on UHF TV on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

What I remember:
1. Scientist main character was placed into some kind of experimental suspended animation chamber for a test that was supposed to last a couple days
2. He got buried in some kind of earthquake or other disaster and forgotten
3. He gets discovered hundreds of years later by people who revive him
4. During his time in suspended animation, WWIII had occurred and society had changed into factions of survivors
5. There was some sort of fancy high speed underground train they all got around on.

Any ideas?

From Genesis II:
In 1979, NASA scientist Dylan Hunt (Alex Cord) is working on "Project Ganymede", a suspended animation system for astronauts on long-duration space flights. As chief of the project he volunteers for the first multi-day test. He places himself in chemically induced hibernation deep inside Carlsbad Caverns; while there, his lab is buried in an earthquake. The monitoring equipment is damaged and fails to awake him at the intended end of the test. He awakens instead in 2133, emerging into a chaotic post-apocalyptic world. An event called "The Great Conflict" (a third and final World War) destroyed the civilization of Hunt's time.

Please give Vgex credit. I merely Googled his response and posted the description of the movie.

The whole film is on YouTube. Just watched as much of it as I could stand a few weeks ago. IIRC, it may have been mis-titled by the poster, but that could have been another one I was watching.
