List Criteria: Movies must feature trains.

What are the best train movies ever made? This list includes a lot of different movies that all feature trains in some fashion. Whether it's comedy or drama, the great train movies included here are all memorable. Some of them are among the best movies of all time, too. Which one is your favorite? Vote up the train films you like the most and feel free to rerank this list any way you want. If any good train movies are missing, feel free to add them to the list.

Some of the best train films are train robbery movies. Among them: The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and The Great Train Robbery. Trains are an excellent vehicle (so to speak) for story lines involving robberies. They're fast, dangerous and an exciting means of transportation, after all. Along those lines, two outstanding Alfred Hitchcock films both involve trains: 1951's Strangers on a Train and 1959's North By Northwest.

Without a doubt, some of the best comedy films are also about trains. Who can forget the hilariously classic Planes, Trains and Automobiles, starring Steve Martin and John Candy? And 1976's Silver Streak is a comedy thriller that includes murder, mayhem and the comedic genius of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor.
