CineTrains hunts down TV and Movies that show even the briefest glimps of trains. I take a screenshot then I go on the hunt to figure out what the equipment shown is. After scouring the internet for the information, I dig up the history of the equipment, and then post it for all to see!

If you have any leads, let me know and I will do everything I can to write about it!

  1. If there is any information out there or photos that you or someone that you may know.. I am looking for pictures of the Atchison, Topeka & the Santa Fe #2903- it was built in 1943 by the Baldwin Company. It is a Northern 4-8-4-. She last operated in 1956- only six of these locomotives survived. At 121 feet in length she is the longest of the Northern trains. She was at the Museum of Science and Industry for almost 3 decades. It was moved to the Illinois Railway Museum in 1995. Could someone please contact me if you have any sort of information. I would like to have any of that information for a project that I am working on.

    Thank-You! Nancy Ring 🙂

  2. I am glad someone made a site showing trains in movies, it reminds me of a site called trains in games which closed down unfortunatly (mabe a nice sister project in the future?) anyway have you ever tried atomic train (1999) with rob low? the full vhs version is on youtube so not a hard find now. the movie is in my opinion not so great, but the quite rare engines used in it are a good maker for the rest (BC rail MLW M420’s) and perhaps the taking of pelham 123 (original and remake if you want to do it correct)
    there is also another train movie on youtube, night train to venice…it’s european so a new territory…but it is also the worst movie ever and quite wel hidden on youtube..for perhaps the greater goods. I might if I have the time send some more info per mail in the “submit ideas” section on these films but for now my time is to short.
    anyway these are my two cents for now. You are doing a great job Nance
