I was watching this film on my previous laptop via TV-Tuner card and right then my laptop had crashed. I didn't check channel name and newspaper for the film name at the time, and now I can't remember it. It was at least before May 2010(I was watching the film in college and this when I left college - jic it helps though I am not sure if the film released recently at the time)... It was a train scene in the wilderness.

(I can't remember if there was snow I think there wasn't). There weren't huge trees or even bushes around the track. I think what could see around the track was some sort of land with no large vegetation. It was a night scene but nothing like pitch dark.
Suddenly the train stops(not as in jolted/forced stop). The driver(or train guard or conductor. He was a dark skinned guy) comes out and looks around. Torch in one hand. He crouches in his knees to maybe look beneath the train between wheels(maybe). Then he turns around while still on his one knee towards back in the distance parallel to the train or maybe perpendicular and he is startled to see sth. There was no sound or visual of what he might have seen. And exactly at that moment my laptop went kaboom(with smoke). I have always wanted to locate the film, I couldn't. Asked at a couple of film related forums but maybe I was not able to give proper hints.(I was able to locate Straight Into Darkness on of those forums in the similar manner)
I think there was another person who came out of the train to look. Maybe a curious passenger or maybe some staff. Not sure about this either.
I don't think there was any conversation between any characters till that moment (my laptop crashed). Maybe between that possible second guy and guard/conductor but again, I am not even sure whether the second guy appeared in the film, till then, at all.
