These are recollections related to me by a friend. If anyone could suggest films that may be similar that would be great.
A black and white film from the 1950s or 1960s involving the fraught relationship between a father and son. Perhaps the father works on or around trains? At one point the son tries to end his life by lying on the train tracks. The father has an elaborate model train setup which he is protective of. The son smashes up the model trains as an expression of his anger toward the father.
