Trapped on a Train of Terror!
Did You Know?
When the train pulls into Frankfurt (and throughout the film), one can observe members of the 709th Military Police Service Batalion. Formed in April of 1942, it landed in Normandy on D-Day in 1944. It was the first M.P. unit to reach Paris. It moved to Frankfurt in October, 1945. As of 2016, it is still and active unit of the U.S. Army, headquartered at Grafenwoehr, Bavaria, Germany. See more
The narration for the final scene says the train arrived at Wannsee, in the far west of Berlin, but the scene shows them driving from the east, down Unter Den Linden and into West Berlin. The British and American then ask passing jeeps for lifts to their respective bases which they would have driven past on the way from Wannsee, whilst the Russian turns around and drives back under the Brandenburg Gate into East Berlin.
