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

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.
