The television show, "Silver Spoons" sometimes showed a train riding through the living room of the home.

Wallace and Gromet
"The Wrong Trousers."
Check it out for THE BEST chase scene anywhere in film. Seriously, the best.
(Hint: It features a model train.)

Thank you for that. That's awesome!
And at :25 I can see the girder bridge with the Lionel name just like I have.
And it's using trestles. I was wondering if I could do that with my bridge.
Now I know!

No one remembers that?
Sorry ed...I don't remember that particular accident....but man did I ever get excited when the Capt. would pull out the train table and Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit would don the Engineer attire, which set up a Mr. Moose Knock-Knock joke and all those pingpong ball!!
