I spend a lot of time at either the cinema or theatre. You will then find reviews from these films and shows!

7 Films for Train Lovers

Well I am currently sat on a train on my return journey home from a couple of days in London. There’s something still so good about trains, and I always love films with a train in them. So decided to pick my 7 favourites!

Before Sunrise 

From Russia with Love

Brief Encounter


Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows

The Polar Express

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

What films do you love on a train or with a good train scene?

      I will be adding pictures later, but the train WIFI won’t let me on photobucket!

      Oh I haven’t seen that one! Just googled it and sounds decent!!

  4. Nice list. You gotta check out Snowpiercer, though. While you’re at it, you might want to give a look to: Unstoppable, Silver Streak, and Under Siege 2.

      Your the second person to mention Snowpiercer! I’ve seen Unstoppable!

    The Emperor of the North and Runaway Train spring to mind, Narrow Margin isn’t half bad either.

    • Caz

      I’ll look into those 🙂

      July 5, 2015 at 6:56 pm

  6. Twentieth Century, The Lady Vanishes, Night Train to Munich, The Palm Beach Story, and North by Northwest all come to mind.

    July 5, 2015 at 6:56 pm

    • Caz

      I totally should have thought about North by Northwest! Thanks for the other suggestions 🙂

      July 5, 2015 at 6:57 pm

  7. North By Northwest, Palm Beach Story, The Narrow Margin and Twentieth Century are a few classics on trains. There’s also source code.

      Source Code was a contender. Your the second person to mention North By Northwest, I cannot believe I missed that one, especially with how much I am loving Cary Grant again atm.

  9. Check out Hitchcock’s early film The Lady Vanishes.

      Thanks for the recommendation!

  10. Strangers on a Train is the definitive film on a train. I love the visuals in that film. I’ve always loved it but studying it for film studies gave me a new perspective on the amazing motifs Hitchcock used.

      I defo need to check that one out!
