A year after their father's funeral, three brothers travel across India by train in an attempt to bond with each other.
The train scenes were filmed inside a moving train travelling from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer and through the Thar desert. Nothing could be fixed to the ceiling, and filming equipment couldn't be more than a meter out of the windows. Writer and Director Wes Anderson and Production Designer Mark Friedberg went to the Northwestern Railways company and told them they needed ten rail-cars and a locomotive, which they would redecorate entirely and then move around their railway. Northwestern Railways had never gotten such a request, and though it took a lot time and effort, it was eventually granted.
That's my train.
When Peter runs for the train, he has 2 pieces of luggage. When he walks through the train, he has 3 pieces.
