Thread: Trains on movies

  1. #1

    Default Trains on movies

    Hi, everybody!
    I love trains and I am new playing with this kinds of simulators, a new world for me.
    And what about trains on movies?
    The last one I watched was Train to Busan, but I know there are many.
    Do you enjoy watching trains on films?

    Start with the classics..."The General" Buster Keaton
    The General is now often ranked among the greatest American films ever made. In 1989, it was selected by the Library of Congress to be included in the first class of films for preservation in the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
    Stunts, are amazing...no digital...all for real. Keaton was amazing!!

    I think this is one of the most gripping films involving trains. Rather a naff poster on Wiki but check out the Trailer. This one will have you on the edge of your seat.

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt

    There is a whole website dedicated to movies (and to a lesser extent, series) where trains appear or make out some part of the story, but unfortunately it is in German:

    Last updated end 2017, so does not contain pictures or series made after that year.

    Most kids in Canada have watched him in the Railrodder at some point in their lives, which is kind of a love letter to Canadian railways (and Canada itself) with his unique genius, as he travels coast to coast on a speeder:

    The Polar Express (2004) is a nice computer animated film not only for children. I liked it because it's exciting and has some fantasy in it. Even tho I work in the sports betting industry which is based on pure numbers normally.
    I wrote a complete review for the UK horse racing betting site Coral. You can check it out on horsebetting.com if you like.
