The train no longer has to be part of the whole work. You might have a train based episode in a series but it won't be much of a BottleEpisode since it requires a new set and extras. There may be brief departures from the train but the time spent on the train should be enough to set up enough plot elements to stop people wandering too far or going to get help.

Plane based thrillers...are almost exactly identical but they're covered by DeathInTheClouds. Compare TrainJob. May occasionally but not frequently contain a TraintopBattle, most likely as a climax.
