The Fugitive (1993)
The train scenes were filmed in Dillsboro, North Carolina. The engine
used (which was not destroyed) now pulls a dinner train. During a ride on that train, props
from the making of the film can be seen, including the prison bus and the shell of the engine that
crashed into the bus. Dillsboro is
next to the town on Sylva, NC where the local hospital was used for filming the
hospital scenes in the beginning of the film and the ambulance get-away.
The dam used in the exterior shots is Cheoah Dam, Tapoco, Graham County,
North Carolina, USA. The dam can be viewed clearly from North Carolina State Highway 129, just
north of the town of Tapoco,
