That market is pretty well locked up by Hot Wheels:

Or if you prefer, there's the "singing" Hallmark version:

Maybe it's my fading memory but I do not remember a train in any Batman television episode. Was there a battle with a train in the Dark Knight a few years ago? 

Spiderman did duke it out on a retired CTA 2200 L car about 10 years ago. How the CTA extended the loop to NYC is anyones guess. :)

Season 1, episodes 17: True or False Face, and Episode 18: Holy Rat Race had Batman and Robin tied to the tracks of the Gotham City Subway as the cliffhanger between the episodes.  But that's about as close to a train as Adam and Burt got.

False Face was played by Malachi Throne but the episode credits say "?????" because since he was always wearing a mask, Throne didn't want screen credit.  He's reported to have said "Anybody could have been behind that mask".

There was the 3 level Gotham Monorail in "Batman Begins:

My guess is they just tunneled through the Earth.  The branch line would be quite a bit shorter than if it had been overland.......Duh!

 

btw I love all of the vehicles and Batcave in the Batman movie and series.  I'd buy that Batcave except for one small thing.....okay.....one HUGE thing......the price.  Otherwise, I would have ordered a batload.

Well I'm sure a lot of us could build one of our own for our layouts a lot cheaper than 700 bucks!  Wink

WELL I  was offered 100.00 dollars off                  still............................

 

Did buy the LEGO one saving 50.00

 

 

As a boy in the comics Bruce DID have trains to play with

 

After Mom and Dad left him...........................Certainly enough room in the Batcave for a layout

In 1943 Lewis Wilson's Batman had a desk in his cave:

But in 1949 Robert Lowery had a few more gadgets:

But his nemesis (Darth Vader's grand daddy) had more in his cave:

The villain, "The Wizard" in the 1949 serial Batman and Robin has a device to control machines and in one scene the process is demonstrated using a Lionel locomotive that may be a 700E.  But it's a bit hard to identify on my copy.
