Best films about/involving trains

Add a list or tag with showdown:train

We’re going station to station hunting for your ten favorite films of the twentieth century (and the centuries either side) set on the railway. Some like it hot, some like it polar; the general rule is there has to be some significant action on a train. Think dining cars, roof chases, conversations in compartments (especially number six), strangers meeting, ladies vanishing and brief encounters at railway stations. 1, 2, 3: all aboard. There’s a blind chance you’ll make it before sunrise after a hard day’s night piercing snow—as long as you’re not in the wrong trousers.
