9 Movies That Were Set Almost Entirely In A Train

Season 2 of Snowpiercer has begun! So buckle up for another thrilling ride with Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, and the latest addition to the show – Sean Bean as Mr. Wilford, the genius inventor of the train. The only downside? There will only be one episode per week, so it could take a few months for the entire season to be out. But until then, you can hop on board these nine express trains that promise an exciting adventure. Each of the films mentioned below have been set almost entirely in trains, proving that you can make a good movie of any genre in a train.
