The Train is a 1964 World War II film starring Burt Lancaster as a French railway inspector who joins the French Resistance effort to stop a German train carrying stolen works of art from escaping to Germany as the Allies close in on Paris. The film was directed by John Frankenheimer.

The following weapons were used in the film The Train:

MP 40 Submachine Gun

Both the German Army and the French Resistance use the MP40 throughout the movie. Paul Labiche (Burt Lancaster) uses it during a nighttime raid and at the end when he confronts Colonel von Waldheim (Paul Scofield).

It appears at the beginning of the movie the German sentries outside of the museum have a Maxim MG08 Machine Gun.The lighting is not very good unfortunately.

Beretta M1934

Pilzer (Arthur Brauss) uses a Beretta M1934 to shoot young French Resistance member Robert during the fake air raid blackout. It's only seen very briefly in the darkened train station before Labiche (Burt Lancaster) kills him. Von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) also has what appears to be one in a holster.
