Production on the movie in Switzerland was delayed, due to vandalism. The train was graffitied with political slogans on one roof, and inside the carriages, whilst sitting stationery overnight at Delemont Station. The train roof graffiti was only discovered when aerial photography was being conducted from a helicopter.


Dr. Jonathan Chamberlain: You can wash for a week. It will not make the slightest bit of difference.
Jennifer Rispoli Chamberlain: What would you prescribe, doctor?

Alternate Versions

SPOILER: The 1980s American video version deletes all the carnage during the final sequence, when half of the train goes onto the bridge, which collapses under it. This version shows the train itself, crashing to the ground, but removes the interior shots of passengers being killed, as well as shots of bodies floating in the river in the aftermath, giving the impression that the front half of the train was empty when it fell. This version also deletes the scene with the song "I'm Still On My Way", sung by the hippies, various instances of cursing and other assorted shots which got the film its R rating in 1976.
