The Railway Man is a 2013 British-Australian film directed by Jonathan Teplitzky. When Eric Lomax meets his future wife Patti, a new life begins for him. Nevertheless, he can not leave his presence behind. Drawn on what happened to him during his imprisonment during the Second World War, only his friend Finlay can understand what is going on inside him. When the latter presents him with a newspaper report about Eric's former tormentor Takeshi Nagase, who now manages a war museum, Eric has the opportunity to find a degree.

The following weapons were used in the film The Railway Man:


Arisaka Type 38
