Watched the Wild, Wild West episode "The Night of the Deadly Bed"...in it the bad guy is explaining how his train destroyer is going to work, using an impressively sized working model mockup that looks to be S scale. I half expected him to turn to West and say, "Please excuse the crudity of this model, I didn't have time to build it to scale or to paint it."

One of the old b/w Sherlock Holmes movies takes place mostly on a Brit passenger train. The night shots of the train going by are obviously of a lighted model train; it is going too fast and its movements are jerky. It is shown a good bit in the wee hours.
The movie Silver Streak is shown from time to time on television. It features a real passenger train with a fictional road name. It has very funny parts and the end features a pretty spectacular train wreck involving the lead diesel locomotives remodeling a train station.

I read something somewhere that they went through a lot of Lionel recording the scenes.
Nothing but the best for Gomez.

Watched Captain America last night. Has a train scene in it where they capture a nazi scientist. Not a model train, but, still have to share!

Wilford Brimley had a nice little model railroad
in the 1980s TV show Our House.
Pretty cool show that.
But haven't seen it on in ages.

Risky Business (1984) with Tom Cruise, there's an O scale train layout he's playing with towards the end.

in 3rd Rock from the sun the is an episode where Dick figures out that he is pathetic and no woman would want him so he decides to take up model trains and stay home. Kind of rough humor at our expense but a good laugh.

On his next date when his potential lady friend asks Dick what he does for hobbies, he states that he "hangs out with models"
