A movie titled The Commuter starring Liam Neeson will debut in Jan. of 2018.

 

I'm no expert on the movie, but IMDB indicates it was filmed in four locations:

 

Sacramento, California, USA

New York City, New York, USA

Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England, UK

Surrey, England, UK
 

So, the actual stations and trains sets used are unknown to me.

I've ridden: ~ The Empire Builder 1981 ~ The Coast Starlight 1981 ~ The Texas Eagle ~ The Sunset Limited ~
Books: ~ Time-Life - The Old West ~ The Railroaders * Rail Ventures - 4th Edition

 

I think it is absolute mythology that there's any national system that is profitable. And I think the naysayers just have to get over it. ~ Amtrak President Alex Kummant ~ June 2008

Well I'm pretty sure I saw NJT Arrows, NJT Comets/MNRR Shoreliners, NJT MLVs, Amfleets and maybe an M7.


Forum's official broken record about expanded Georgia passenger service!

Ha! Mine neither. But I guess it would be hard to make a 2-hour Hollywood movie out of a "normal" commute.

 

Scene 1: Boards train

 

Scene 2: Train moves

 

Scene 3: Train stops at next station

 

Scene 4: Train moves

 

Scene 5: Train waits in siding for late outbound train

 

Scene 6: Train moves again...

 

Etc.

They'd call that a "documentary".

However, if it's an intercity train, Norway makes a show out of it^_^

 

The seven-hour episode is also available on Netflix.

Gonna have to wait for the Director's Cut Extended Version with Deleted Scenes for that one! :)
