** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' also had a train that acted as a courier of recently departed souls to the afterlife. An [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Undead Train]]. It's so cool that he made cameo appearances as a BonusBoss in both ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' remakes, and ''FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears''.

** An armoured train operated on the Romney, Hythe, and Dymchurch Railway in southeastern England during the SEcond World War. Unique in that the RH&D is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romney,_Hythe_and_Dymchurch_Railway#Armoured_train a 15-inch gauge railway]]. The train's size led some Luftwaffe pilots to misjudge their altitude and fly lower, leading to crashes.

* America's freight railroads have been known to paint some of their locomotives in retro paint schemes to honor "fallen flags", railroads that they acquired to expand their network in the past.
**The Union Pacific Railroad has its Heritage units. This is a set of six EMD [=SD70ACe=] locomotives painted in the schemes of six fallen flag railroads the Union Pacific acquired in the 1980s and 1990s: Union Pacific 1982 (Missouri Pacific Railroad), Union Pacific 1983 (Western Pacific Railroad), Union Pacific 1988 (Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad), Union Pacific 1989 (Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad), Union Pacific 1995 (Chicago & Northwestern Railway), and Union Pacific 1996 (Southern Pacific Railroad).
**Two Chicago & Northwestern Railway Dash 9s, 8646 and 8701, have not been repainted into Union Pacific colors at all and there are no plans to repaint them at all. In fact, these Dash 9s have often been paired with Union Pacific 1995.
**The Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) still has a fair number of units that use Burlington Northern's "Evergreen Green", or Santa Fe's "Warbonnet" and "Bluebbonnet" paint schemes.
**For their 30th anniversary,Norfolk Southern painted 10 EMD [=SD70ACe=]s and 10 GE [=ES44ACs=] as special heritage units, each bearing the paint schemes and markings of the various predecessor railroads of Norfolk Southern and Conrail.

* The [[https://www.pottermore.com/writing-by-jk-rowling/the-hogwarts-express Hogwarts Express]] from the ''Film/HarryPotter'' cements itself as one in ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' when it is introduced sitting at the station with steam rising around it.



* The [[http://v3.cache1.c.bigcache.googleapis.com/static.panoramio.com/photos/original/13068807.jpg?redirect_counter=1 Hogwarts Express]] from ''Film/HarryPotter'' certainly counts.

* ''TabletopGaame/MutantChronicles'': In older editions of ''Warzone'', Capitol operated a number of huge armored trains in south Mars, which were literally described as railbound battleships and aircraft carriers, designed to fulfill that role in an environment without seas.
