* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'', one of the portrait stages (13th Street) begins in an {{Expy}} of the London Underground. At first one wouldn't think much of the railroad tracks, thinking it's just part of the flavor (it's a repurposed segment that appeared earlier and was used for a minecart ride)...then the locomotive suddenly appears.

* Another humorous example occurs in the Western comedy ''Film/TheVillain'', where the eponymous Cactus Jack Slade ends up caught in his own [[StickySituation glue trap]] on a railroad crossing and gets hit by a train. Because he's MadeOfIron, he survives this. (The film is essentially a live-action [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Roadrunner cartoon]].)

* A ''Radio/LightsOut'' episode, "Taking Papa Home", has a woman taking her very drunken husband Harold home from a party. They stall on the train tracks, and she can neither push the car nor get Harold safely out (he passes out in the car). The last thing we hear is the sound of the train crashing into the car.
