Train Movies Ranked

Films that take place on trains or films where trains heavily influence the narrative of a movie. So while North by Northwest or Strangers on a Train or Midnight Run or Broken Arrow or Speed or The Lone Ranger have major train set pieces, trains aren't exactly the main focus of setting for those films. I'm sure there are some good ones I've missed. These are the ones I've seen.
