Part of the new Mission Impossible 7 is being recorded in Norway and some scenes include the Orient express.

Some Orient express wagons were pulled to the location (Åndalsnes), using an old Nohab Di3 (NSB)

The wagons are not real Orient express wagons, but repainted Norwegian B3 series wagons. (although B3 wagons were used in the Swedish orient express.)

an English article: https://norwaytoday.info...-festival-on-the-ground/

for the production, thy have shipped a BR Standard Class 7 locomotive over from England.

Thanks for posting these. The Nohab pulling the Wagons Lits makes an interesting combination, which is now prototypical!

A bit more info,
The yellow Nohab Di3.628 is also being used together with the di3.642. ref Märklin 37662

here is a short video of the two Nohab's pulling the trainset together.

As for the British class 7 locomotive, it appears to be a Dummy made especially for the movie production. The pseudo Britannia is unpowered but with moving parts,, and rumours claims that it has a diesel generator in the tender to power the smoke generators. The locomotive is camouflaged as a French locomotive with the name Le General Rive-Reine and numbering 462.09 MO (Not French). The name Le General Rive-Reine could be a reference to the old train classic "The Train" from 1964, and the train crash at the fictional village Rive-Reine. There is an artile about the locomotive in the last Steam Railway magasine
