How do they achieve the zooming in through a window into the interior scene of a train coach in the photography of a movie?

Depends on how much money they have, and how committed the director is to "continuous takes."
The least expensive way to do it is to insert a quick cut between two zoom shots. One zooming up to the window, then another going from the window to the interior shot.
If you care a lot about continuous takes, and have the money for the more-expensive rig, you would need to have a boom-mounted camera, with a lens that can be controlled remotely.

Stage setups usually. Or seamless camera work.
