It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World and The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. These films are excellent, they have long run times, and you will be a better person for having watched them if you haven't already. If you have watched them, but not recently, then it's about time you watched them again.

+1 for North by Northwest. Carey Grant, Eva St Marie. Can't Alfred Hitchcock. You can't miss !

The Hole, Buried, Panic Room, Devil, Cube.

All wonderful choices for being in a confined space for an extended period of time.

Or just watch 6 Episodes of Game of Thrones.

Watch "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" twice. The trip will be over before you finish the second play through.

6 hours you say? If i remember correctly titanic will be about ready for disc 2 right about the time you get there. Or you might make it through an extended edition of LOTR's...

The Stand (mini-series, actually). It will take your entire 6 hours, though.

Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises.

Switchback, a suspense thriller starring Dennis Quaid, Danny Glover and Jared Leto, an FBI agent tracking a serial killer along a train route. The Hunted, starring Christpher Lambert and John Lone, has a fantastic fight scene between modern ninjas and a samurai on a Japanese bullet train. Citizen X, starring Stephen Rhea and Donald Sutherland, a police officer braves resistance from the Soviet political system in this fascinating true story of the hunt for the most prolific serial killer of modern times. There's trains in this one but I don't want to give it away.

I think Dances with Wolves is like 40 hours long or something.

If you're trying to fall asleep then I would recommend a documentary! Not because they are boring (personally I've been watching a lot of documentaries about Space lately, fascinating stuff!), but usually the narrator has an easy-to-listen-to voice :)

Angels in America is 2 x 3-hour movies. It's pretty intense and not at all train related. It just came to mind when you mentioned the time-span you need to fill.

It was made for HBO but won a ton of academy awards and has an incredible all-star cast of Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson, Jeffrey Wright (Felix in the new James Bonds), and Mary-Louise Parker and Justin Kirk (from weeds). Even Michael Gambon has a tiny role. It's set around AIDS and homosexuality in the 80s in New York....

It's definitely not a movie for the homophobic. But it is extremely good.

you could squeeze in all three of the original die hards maybe
