railways in fiction and fantasy

I suppose it counts as "in fiction", but a model railway layout was central to the plot (no spoilers) to the first episode of "The Cleaner" on BBC1, it's still on iPlayer.

It's not a spoiler as it's from the start, but it is rather gory and sweary, but I thought it was quite funny and a warning to us all.

Tintin has the occasional railway encounter - in "The Black Island" he jumps onto the roof of a BR Mk 1 hauled by what looks like a Bulleid Southern Region diesel.tintin-black-island-page-b.jpg.a2edef71b6370a1086238db4990ff6de.jpg

 

My wife has that one in French- apart from the odd choice of locomotives in the train chase, there's other nicer details like instead of a music note for the airhorn, it's captioned "Toot" :)

When I used to read such a thing, the 'comic' 2000 AD used to have a strip called 'Nemesis the Warlock'. I always enjoyed the Edwardian 'steampunk' look, and before I'd even heard of steampunk, it was probably my first experience of the genre.

 

Some of the transport depicted was rather good, I thought. Take a look at this link - the steam iron man/robot pulling the tram, and the 'Equatorial Express' are about halfway down the page:

I'll have to have a look when I get home, but I've a feeling that the pic of the iron chap pulling the tramcar is based on something called the "Steam-man of the plains", I'm sure there's a pic of it in the book "Boilerplate: Histories Mechanical Marvel"

 

Love the Crystal Palace monorail in that link too!
