Speaking of three rail, did anyone remeber the huge Lionel set in Superman Returns?
I just watched The Magnificent Seven today. Towards the begining there is a train scene where James Coburn has a gun fight with another guy. In the back ground there is a train lettered FCI #67. The movie was shot in Mexico I think. Can anybody give me anymore details on the railroad or engine?
Has anyone mentioned "Broken Arrow"? I noticed a movie "mistake" with that train scene when they uncoupled the car's. Look closely!
I am surprised nobody has mentioned Breakheart Pass with Charles Bronson.
I'm pretty sure Sierra RR #3 has been in more films than any other locomotive in history. Everything from the Marx brothers' Go West to High Noon to Back to the Future 3.
It was listed in
however there have been quite a few other cross thread references so it still counts. sign1

W&H MAIN YARDS: List of Railway Movies
Theres also a really obscure TV movie from the 80's with Mickey Rooney called Treasure Train. In it, they restore and old steam engine.
:thumb: Clark, there are two versions of 3:10 to Yuma, which are you refering to. Also how about "Jewel of the Nile" if you're into foriegn trains.
I just finished watching "THE GHOST AND THE DARKNESS" which has been mentioned. It is a good true story.
I still have not come across any that have not been mentioned.
Having a hard time keeping up. :thumb:
Probably the 2007 version, although I think that both versions have been mentioned.
Just saw a new one to add to the list. The Island. Cool futuristic trains.
Not sure if I should include this one as technically its a truck and not a train- but it is on the rails (just finished watching it again- got the whole mad max trilogy as a present)
but then people have no problems with modelling the galloping goose- so i'll put it in
mad max 3- beyond thunderdome
No, actually I'll have to look it up, but I believe the very first motion pictures were shot by a French fellow, and were of trains passing through a major station, back in the 1890-somethings.
*edit* Aha! The Lumiere brothers short film L'Arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat was shot in 1895.
Very cool. :thumb:
That is something I was looking for when I started this thread.
Movies sure have come a long way.
What about the I love toy trains and big trains series?
I have quite a few childrens VHS tapes on trains, do they count?
Just saw another movie to add to the list. In "Superman Returns" the evil Lex Luthor has this awesome Marklin layout. If for no other reason check the movie out. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
