Searched the thread, but didn't see it mentioned by either the movie's title or the main actor (Chevy Chase), the movie is called "Nothing But Trouble" theirs a dinner scene where the Judge(Dan Akroyd) has a Lionel set inside the table that has condiments on it. Starts at the 4:30 mark- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Apjvf9YNzEM
I just showed my wife this video clip, and she said that she may let me make something like this for our kitchen table lol

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?

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

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.

Any time I point out a model train, or a Merkur(or it's euro ancestor) in a movie/TV my wife just rolls her eyes, and shakes her head.
