Got to go for ;

The original Ladykillers.

Von Ryan's Express (even if I do get told off everytime by pointing out the "DB" logo's on the rolling stock).

The one where the French sabotage the attempts to transport the artworks back to Germany.

I am another for the original ''The Ladykillers'. This was the railway and North London of my childhood. As a modelling resource of visual references only the DVD would be strongly recommendable; and it is a very funny story.

From over the pond, 'The General'. Buster Keaton, and antics with the steam railway. Some of the stunts verge on the unbelievable, simply for the degree of hazard involved. The detail of the cab interior, the rock and roll ride, and the general railway background make it doubly interesting.

Frame, that's the one! Following the staged derailment Burt Lancaster sets up the amazing double collision (poor old 230Bs!) to trap the train of artworks - they had a dozen cameras set up to record the initial derailment - only ONE survived (with the loco's buffer about a foot away)!

I like the train scene in North by northwest. Not much train I admit but it still adds toa great film for me.

Also love the clips in Murder she said, 1960 's staring Margaret Rutherford.

Got this wrong (before BRITHO corrects me) - the "DB" logo's are in "The Great Escape" which is another film I enjoy. (I think I've got it right now).
