The link work fine here in the Netherlands.
Maybe it's blocked in the States.

I can remember a movie on tv in which a runaway carrying A-bombs is derailed and causes a nuclear incident.

Another great movie centered around the railroad is Breakheart Pass.  The train wreck scene is real, no computer generated BS there .  However, some beautiful vintage rolling stock destroyed. 😱😭😥

Pretty much anything with Bronson is good.
Some interesting trivia about it - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072735/trivia

Deride me if you may, but my favorite "train" movie is Back to the Future III.
Fun fact #1: They filmed the scenes with the car and the train in reverse so the train wouldn't push the car off the tracks.
Fun fact #2: The train seen going over the edge of the ravine is actually a 1/4 scale model.

Here's some stuff about Hell On Wheels and the fake trains on Hollywood's Railroads.

Everyone, in the area where they filmed that, was quite happy to see the whole production crew finally leave.

“Hollywood” is down here all the time “filming”.  We are also happy with their departure.

I would imagine film crews would be pretty disruptive.

Locomotives were borrowed from several sources. The runaway used two AC4400CWs from Canadian Pacific. There were two sets of these, painted identically down to the road numbers. The blue SD40-2 Denzell Washington ran was one of three borrowed from Wheeling and Lake Erie. The two grey locomotives that rolled over and caught fire are the last SD40-2s built, in 1986, for Mexico. At the time of the filming, they were owned by W&LE but not yet repainted from the grey paint they wore in Mexico. Last, the locomotive that pulled the excursion train full of school children was a GP11 borrowed from Allegheny Valley that they bought from Illinois Central. Most of the scenes in the movie are locations within 150 miles of Pittsburgh, including the bridge at Stanton (Bellaire, OH) the site of the rollover accident (Emporium, PA) the main yard at Brewster (Rook, PA though W&LE has a yard in Brewster, OH) and the location where they finally stopped the runaway (Martins Ferry, OH)

I'm surprised nobody here has yet mentioned Disney's "The Great Locomotive Chase:"

Location work was on the now long-abandoned Tallulah Falls Railway:

Bachmann's 19th century 4-4-0s are actually based on Virginia & Truckee prototypes.  Several of those engines have been used in movie work over the years, including, if I remember right, No. 22, which portrayed the Texas in "The Great Locomotive Chase."

And one of Bachmann's offerings for this American is as lettered for Western & Atlantic!

V & T are about the only locos I could find with the trim on the roof which is how I figured that Bachmann's were based on them.

What was the intrigue movie where , at the end, the villain girl and George Segal are on the top of the train.  He is down and she is standing facing to the rear and is pointing a gun at him about to plug him.  He says “ you know what I like about you?  You’re real tall”, then the train goes into a tunnel and knocks her block off.  I cannot remember the name of this movie.
