There is a commercial on right now for a new car with a train running around it and that Steamer Loco has to be the best Smoker I have ever seen, could it be smoking that good or was it doctored up with magic for the commercial?

Scales Modeled: N-Scale.
Just saw the opening of the movie "Holiday Affair", made in 1949. The opening credits and first few minutes show, I assume, Lionel trains in a Christmas display at a department store. Robert Mitchum is the salesman. I'm curious to see what else shows up.

About the Addams Family movie?
The diesel loco was a complete FAKE
was designed to explode

other movies with model trains are:
Total Recall with Arnold That one was a model on the set of Mars
Chip n Dale with Donald Duck: Out of Scale & Toy Tinkers
Sierra #3 4-6-0 Need I say more?

ohh in a early B&W episode of The Wild Wild West there was a HO scale train set!
Lone Ranger movie there was a HO set in the business car

Hopefully Pixar/Disney is working on a Trains movie hehe

Even though that movie is total fiction and not at all historically accurate, I wonder if they really did have toy wind up trains back then.

I dunno if this one has been mentioned yet....
The Twilight Zone: Stopover in a Quiet Town.
The train scene starts at about 20:00 but if you haven't seen it already, I suggest you do. It's one of the best. (Then again, all of them were!)

Loco Motives: CSI

In the Crime drama CSI (Vegas) season 7 had a recurring story (episodes 1, 2, 7, 10, 11, 16, 20, & 24 and then wraps up in season 8) about a serial killer who built scale dioramas of the crime scene and sent them to the crime lab. In season 7 episode 10 “Loco Motive” the plot appears to climax when a man who builds model trains is confronted and about the murders and confesses. They confront him in his train room, HO scale ATS&F, I think. It is featured prominently. During the investigation, the CSIs visit a hobby shop which was enlightening to the general public. When ever this plot line popped up, my wife gave me a strange “are YOU a serial killer” look.

The you tube link is below.

She also reminded me there is a train set (toy train ) in Toy Story 2.
