Just watched Clockers the other day. A Spike Lee film about an Inner city kid who loves trains but never been on one. Pretty cool flick!

It had Love and trains what more for a perfect family movie.

In it was the,

Old 97 is based on the J-Class 2-8-2 steam locomotives that used to run on the New Haven Railroad. Old 97 was a common nickname for steam locomotives that had the number 97 on them.

I really don't know if this one counts, but on the RFD network, they run a show called
"I Love Toy Trains" it show cases Lionel train layouts. They also run a show called
"Trains and Locomotives" but they are real trains.
