The List of Railway Movies

Mike Trout & Mark Brader

For some time Mark Brader has maintained the List of Railway Movies. Since Mark is no longer able to post updates regularly, I am maintaining this copy on the WWW for him. When I get a chance, I will convert it to HTML. Meanwhile, here is the final posting of the list, plus subsequent minor editing.

Please note that Mark's email address has changed again, to <>.

Subject:      List of Railway Movies, possibly final edition, March 1997
From: (Mark Brader)
Date:         1997/06/25
Message-Id:   <>

As I am leaving SoftQuad (and Usenet, at least for the moment) today,
I thought I would take this opportunity to repost the current version of
the following list, which I have been maintaining and which has appeared
several times in these newsgroups or their predecessors.
Followups this time are directed to rec.arts.movies.lists+surveys and
misc.transport.rail.misc.  If someone else wants to grab this document
and take over maintenance of it, they are welcome to do so.  As it says
at the end, it's in the public domain.  Please direct NO further email
about it to me.

 [The actual list starts about 120 lines down.]

* An Aperiodically Posted Article

 This is a canned article which I have reposted at irregular intervals in
 the railway and movie newsgroups.  The list was last modified on March 2,
 1997; it was last posted on December 5, 1995, on that occasion to
 uk.railway, misc.transport.rail.americas, misc.transport.rail.europe,
 and misc.transport.urban-transit.

* What This Is About

 The list is restricted to what I like to call Railway Movies of the
 First Kind:  those where the railway aspect can be considered one of
 the most important elements in the movie.  Trains or tracks or subways
 or stations, or railway construction or railway employees, will be in
 the movie generally for at least 1/3 to 1/2 of its length, and usually
 more than that.  Some latitude is granted for films based around a
 *single* train robbery, and there are a few other exceptions based on
 our discretion.  "TV-movies" and video releases are included as well
 as real movies.

 Some examples of movies with notable railway scenes which nevertheless
 do *not* qualify for the list are: "Before Sunrise", "Strangers on a
 Train", "North by Northwest", "Go West", "The Seven-per-cent Solution",
 "Doctor Zhivago".  Movies of less than feature length (say 75 minutes,
 or somewhat less for older films) are also excluded; for example, Buster
 Keaton's 1965 film "The Railrodder", and the famous 1936 British doc-
 umentary "Night Mail", are both shorts and so not listed.

* What This is Not About

 This is not a list of *good* movies about trains; that would be too
 subjective to be useful.  Many films on the list are simply trash.
 It is not a list of *realistic* movies about trains; I'm not qualified
 to evaluate all the technical details, but I can certainly say that many
 of the films have serious flaws in their depiction of railways.  However, 
 since I am posting the list anyway, I have taken the liberty of adding
 a "*" beside the title of a few movies that I have seen and particularly
 enjoyed *as movies*.  Use these as recommendations at your own risk.

 I have no idea which movies have or have not been released on home video.

* Who Did It

 The list was originally compiled by Mike Trout, who is no longer on
 Usenet, and has since been maintained by me, Mark Brader.  Many sources
 were used for descriptions of movies that we haven't actually seen, to
 judge whether or not to list them; but when possible, all dates, running
 times, and cast information are taken from the annual guidebook now
 called "Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide 1996" (Plume, 1996, ISBN
 0-452-27327-7), with this source being generally taken as authoritative.

 The best single reference now available for the question of what is a
 railway movie is "Railways on the Screen" by John Huntley (Ian Allan,
 1993, ISBN 0-7110-2059-0); Huntley lists a vast number of short films
 not included in this list, gives many more details of each film than
 I can do here, and rates every film for the degree of railway content,
 from 1 to 5 engines.  However, his coverage of British movies is clearly
 significantly better than that of American ones or other countries'.
 Also, he does not distinguish releases made directly for home video, and
 his "engine" ratings appear to be based on some factor such as the degree
 to which *real* railways were used in filming.  This list now incorporates
 information from Huntley's listings.  I have adopted the policy, for
 films I have not seen and have no other information about, that a Huntley
 rating of 1 or 2 engines suggests that they don't belong on the list;
 a rating of 3 to 5 suggests that they do.

 Another source of entries was the list of movies that "either take place
 on trains or feature memorable train scenes" given in "The Movie List
 Book: A Reference Guide to Film Themes, Settings, and Series", by
 Richard B. Armstrong and Mary Willems Armstrong (1990, McFarland, ISBN
 0-89950-240-7).  Again, at my discretion I have rejected some films that
 they listed, based on other (sometimes incomplete) information.

 I have also used information from the Internet Movie Database, available
 to WWW users at <> and <> as well as
 by email (write to with the subject line "HELP"),
 when no other source was available.

* Notations

 For each movie where I have seen a cast list, I cite two performers.
 If I have the director but not any performers, I give the director with
 "(D)" following.  The performers are always the first two listed by
 Maltin, or if Maltin does not list the movie, then by Huntley, if he
 does.  This information is only provided to help people identify the
 movie; to keep the list entries short, I am *not* interested in giving
 further credits, or plot information.

 The following words and phrases are abbreviated to their initial single
 letters: Black and white, Color, Silent, Partly, Tv-movie (written
 after the date, and includes releases direct to home video), minutes.
 Thus PB113m means "partly black and white (and hence partly color),
 113 minutes long".  A "?" in the data indicates uncertain information.
 Any known alternate titles the movie may be known by are listed in "[]",
 separated by semicolons if there is more than one; if I have the original
 release title, I always use that for the main listing, even if another
 title is better known.

 A few movies, marked "?" *before the title*, are listed provisionally,
 based on incomplete information.  For example, for films where no running
 time is listed, it's possible that they're really shorts and should be
 deleted; in other cases it may be unclear whether the film is a Railway
 Movie of the First Kind.

 Finally, since Huntley's book includes a large number of documentaries,
 many of them intended specifically for railfans and issued for home
 video.  I have included those that are of feature length, but split
 them out into a separate listing below the main list.  Some companies
 are now issuing such videos as periodicals; these are not included in
 the list.  If the documentaries section becomes very long in the future,
 I may delete it as well, as it is not my main interest here.
