REAL ILLUSION--The giant train used for filming NBC-TV's new comedy-mystery series "Supertrain" (Wednesdays, 8 to 9 p.m. NYT), is actually located inside three big sound stages, but when the script calls for wide shots of the full train, miniature versions of it are used.  Supertrain hostess Rhonda Foxx (lower right) adds perspective to the miniatures, which are located in an airplane hangar.
