According to the Train Movies website Railserve, "the film was shot in British Columbia, where a 'Lac Des Arcs' train station was built along the tracks specifically for the film. The train consisted of a British Columbia Railway (BC Rail) SD40-2 diesel and 12 privately owned passenger cars, all painted in VIA Rail Canada livery to appear as the Toronto-Vancouver Canadian. The private cars included one dormitory, one baggage car, three coaches (#521, 524, 550), one dome car (#555), one dining car (#548), another coach (#540), three sleepers (#558, 564, 544), and a rear dome car (#597). The primary compartments in the film are A6 in #564, and later C6 in #558. Some of the distant exterior shots of the train (specifically two bridge crossings) were filmed using a model train".

The characters' shadows in the final showdown on the car roof are of different lengths in different shots. Most notably, in one shot the villain casts his shadow all the way onto the rocks that pass the train, while in the very next shot his shadow is short and stays entirely on the car roof.
