Model trains in movies/TV series
 
Here's the ones I can think of....
Movies:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The Addams Family (I don't remember if it was in the first, sequel or both.)

TV:
The Sopranos
One of the gangsters gets into the hobby for a few episodes. And then he gets whacked in a hobby store and wrecks the train layout as he's going down! I believe that episode is titled "The Blue Comet" named after the model train.
The Addams Family

Any others?

There's the movie "Arthur" with Dudley Moore. I believe it ran around his bathtub.

Technically it was a trolly but I'll take it since I love Mr. Rogers.
