Transit on film: Atomic Train

Some Monday film fun! Thanks to Bryan for pointing out this clip of a West Vancouver Blue Bus in the TV movie Atomic Train. (The bus can be seen at 3:45 in the clip.)

Atomic Train is from 1999 so I don’t have any info on the film shoot, as I don’t know who was handling the film requests at that time. But just look at how young Mena Suvari is! And Charlotte from Sex & the City plays her mom!

Bryan also mentioned that Look Who’s Talking filmed some clips on Vancouver transit way back when too. Has anyone seen transit-related clips from that film? I’d love to see Travolta or Kirstie Alley or that wacky baby riding a trolley :)

PS: Just a reminder that I’m collecting fun summer trips via transit and more for the July print Buzzer! Submit your vacation hotspot and I’ll try to get as many of them as I can into the Buzzer!

    I found out that it should be filmed for the train part in B.C. between Whistler and Vancouver.The other thing is the train is a B.C. Rail locomotive!!!

    The train part of the movie is filmed in B.C. between Whistler and Vancouver. Also the Locomotive is a B.C. Rail.

    How much money does TransLink or CMBC get from each movie skytrain and the buses are in?

    It varies widely from project to project, since the needs of individual productions are often vastly different.
