Definitely. Hunting Tigers Out In India is one of my favourite songs of theirs.

And we need to get back on topic.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the August 11, 1964 U.S. premiere of "A Hard Day's Night," Malibu Film Society will be showing the newly restored, remixed version of the film which completely reimagined the movie musical and laid the groundwork for the modern music video.
 
The film will be shown Friday and Saturday, August 8-9 at the Malibu Screening Room located at 24855 Pacific Coast Highway (1/2 mile up the coast from Pepperdine University). Both Saturday screenings will feature book-signings and an audience Q&A with author Ivor Davis, the journalist who traveled alongside The Beatles for their first U.S. tour.
 
Davis' first-hand account of that experience is chronicled in the brand new book, "The Beatles and Me on Tour." While there have been previous efforts to cobble together various bits and pieces, this book marks the first time the complete story has been told by someone who was actually there for the entire experience.
 
The movie itself has been meticulously restored from the original camera negative using a 4K high-definition digital scanner, and the original mono recordings have been completely remixed for 5.1 surround sound by Giles Martin (son of the Beatles’ original producer and arranger, Sir George Martin).
 
Tickets for all four shows are on sale now at www.MalibuFilmSociety.org.
 
"A Hard Day’s Night" 50th anniversary screenings!
When: Friday and Saturday, August 8-9 (two shows nightly)
Where: Malibu Screening Room at MJCS
24855 Pacific Coast Highway

Studio Daily article on the AHDN 4K restoration. Pretty technical, but it may shed some light on the Train song:

[Legendary session guitarist Vic] Flick and friends do not appear on one cue which has been baffling fans for decades — a brief rock-and-roll clip heard when Ringo flips on a portable radio while riding on a train. “That’s not me,” Flick states. So who is it? Notes Giles Martin, “My instinct says it’s not The Beatles, but more likely the session players my dad would have gotten in for the soundtrack recording.”

The track is indeed driven by Cattini and likely Weighell, the drummer tells StudioDaily. “That’s definitely me," Cattini says. "The guitars, I think, were ‘Big Jim’ Sullivan and Jimmy Page. They did a lot of the rock stuff together in those days, particularly on these kinds of sessions.”

Bassist Herbie Flowers, who played on many such recordings, though not these, before playing for the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed and, later, George Harrison, conjectures the 37-second cue may have simply been a library track recorded by Martin (or another producer).

“It wasn’t uncommon in those days when, if a session was booked for three hours, and musicians completed their work early, to be asked then to record bits and pieces for use as library tracks,” Flowers explains. “George Martin would no doubt have done a lot of that type of recording, where publishers ask composers for 12 short tracks. One might be ‘fear’ or ‘motivation’ or ‘mechanical’ or ‘mad rock and roll,’ like that one. Film companies would snap these things up, because they didn’t have to pay for the recording or any licensing, other than payment to the publisher.”
