The Hunger Games are good films for railfans. After all, the most luxurious transportation available between the districts is a train that may or may not use magnetic levitation. Curiously, the background of District 12 is decorated with highly conventional, painted steel coal hopper cars.  Meanwhile, the passenger trains run on what appears to be a strange cross between the Transrapid's guideway set on the ground and the aerodynamic shape of the Japanese superconducting maglev vehicles, all hauled by a locomotive whose shrouding looks like it was pirated from the Chicago and Northwestern's Twin Cities 400.  The set designer must have been a railfan though, as the best and most peaceful part of the train is clearly an homage to the Milwaukee Road's unique Skytop lounge cars.…

To fit the cold, oppressive tone of the story though, the interior's metallic walls and dark upholstery make even the famously cool industrial design of the Henry Dreyfuss 1938 20th Century Limited look warm and welcoming.
