* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkoEE1i0CX8 The teaser trailer]] for the 2016 film adaptation of ''Literature/TheGirlOnTheTrain'', which swaps the book's London setting for the more picturesque environs of the Metro-North Railroad's Hudson Line in New York's Westchester County, suggests the filmmakers used both the Hudson Line (along that river; the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ardsley-on-Hudson_(Metro-North_station) Ardsley-on-Hudson station can be seen in some scenes) and the New Haven Line (along Long Island Sound going into Connecticut, as its name suggests). In real life, the red-trimmed M8s of the latter (seen in one shot from above) would never be used on the Hudson Line, where Emily Blunt is shown on the interiors of what appear to be the M7s that are actually used. Also, there are no pedestrian tunnels under the Hudson Line's tracks; the one shown is on the New Haven Line.

* Similarly, ''Film/EternalSunshoneOfTheSpotlessMind'' passed off New Haven Line trains as their UsefulNotes/LongIslandRailRoad counterparts by putting a large logo over the red stripes.

* Some railway-related scenes from Series/DowntonAbbey have rather glaring errors. These include using LNER coaches on SR stations (two railway companies whose stock would likely never meet) and using a 1950s vintage steam locomotive in a 1920s show.

* "Crazy Train", in the seventh season of ''Series/ModernFamily'', takes place on the Amtrak ''Coast Starlight'', which the family takes up to Portland for Didi's wedding. At one point Phil and Mitchell go back through the entire train to the caboose. American trains have not been required to have cabooses since the early 1980s, and have thus long since stopped using them.

** Trains do not have guns on board, as quoted by Metra's own commuter newsletter '''On the Bi Level''', ''If conductors wanted to wield guns they would have applied for a different kind of blue uniform.''.

* Random articles about Indian Railways on various news portals and possibly some printed newspapers often show ''the same morphed picture'' of a locomotive of an Australian trans-continental train called Indian Pacific, whose name appears on the locomotive- only for ''Pacific'' to be shopped into ''Railways''. One such news portal was twice guilty of this trope- after this, since the article was on Southern Railway of India, put up a picture of a locomotive that belonged to Southern Railway in the United States, whose design and livery are nowhere present in India, where the names various Railway Zones are not painted on locomotives, but on coaches.

** A little less forgivable in his spotlight episode ''Triple Takeover'', set in 1985, where he tries to assemble an army of trains at a busy station- and almost all the trains look like 1930s' diesel locomotives, including a few experimental models (one of which resembles the Burlington Pioneer Zephyr), scrapped or retired decades before events of that time.
