Train (n): 1.Railroads . a self-propelled, connected group of rolling stock.
Trains have been an important means of transportation and communication. For the past few decades, they have also been used for entertainment and leisure purposes. While there are many types and shapes, following are a few I found on the web (there are hundreds).
As you know, I hate flying and have a big fear of boarding a plane. I also despise trains. Not as much as planes, but it's a fear that stems from remembering my great-grandfather with his legs cut off at his knees because he fell onto train tracks (a long, long time ago).
I remember him walking on his stumps when I was little.
We have these green trains in Toronto.
I must say, as much as I don't like trains, I really enjoyed the monorail in Disney. Pretty cool.
Do you like riding on the train? Would you prefer the old steam kind, or an electric one if you had a choice?
