* In the opening scene of ''VideoGame/DarkFall Lost Souls'', the Inspector wakes up in a debris-filled train tunnel. He only has a minute or so to explore before the sound of an oncoming train is heard, getting louder and louder as he searches in vain for a way through the blockage. [[spoiler: Subverted in that it's ''just'' sound: the tunnel is haunted by the noise of trains long gone, and the Inspector revives unhurt after the "collision".]]

* Before it was retooled, "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" at the Disney theme parks ended by having the car turn onto train tracks and stare down a train in the tunnel. Kind of Dark Humor as it's the last thing before the ride ends, and this is followed by a trip through ''Hades''.
* Four Words: Ride/BigThunderMountainRailroad.
* ''Ride/DudleyDoRightsRipsawFalls'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]] features this briefly -- at one point, the log ride goes through a dark tunnel. Dudley comments that he's "lost his train of thought," only for a train light to appear at the end of the tunnel. Then the ride rockets down the first drop.
* Grindor in ''Ride/TransformersTheRide'' ends up losing one of his arms after he attempts to attack the riders in a subway station. Naturally, you can imagine what took his arm off.
