The Fugitive Train Wreck Location

CGI wasn’t available in the year 1993 when the film was made. Therefore, using an actual train wreck makes the popular scene all the more real. Especially when viewed from an Ariel-view in the helicopter. It is said how difficult it would have been to replace the wreckage with CGI if it was available at the time.

You can go and visit the wreckage in person as it is still left untouched. Leaving it to be a popular tourist attraction for fans.
