  Train - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the United Kingdom, a train hauled by two locomotives is said to be "double-headed", and in Canada and the United States it is quite common for a long freight train to be headed by three, four, or even five locomotives.
The first trains were rope-hauled, gravity powered or pulled by horses, but from the early 19th century almost all were powered by steam locomotives.
Long-distance trains, sometimes crossing several countries, may have a dining car or restaurant car; they may also have sleeping cars, but not in the case of high-speed rail; these arrive at their destination before the night falls and are in competition with airplanes in speed.

 A-Train - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A-Train, known in Japan as A Ressha de Ikou (A列車で行こう), or Take the A-Train, is a 1992 computer game, originally developed and published by Japanese game developer Artdink for Japan, and was later published by Maxis for the United States.
A-Train uses a near-isometric dimetric projection to present the city, similar to Maxis's SimCity 2000.

 TRAIN
Train is a unique and original take on "mobile computing" and "the moving image." A cinematic narrative in miniature, Train spans the history of technology and it's impact on culture and the aesthetics of representation.
When a train stops, viewers are able to make choices by pressing buttons on their cell phone; they may choose the route and 'pick up' passengers along the way.
Train does not only point to the historical, technological progression from the advent of the railroad and the telegraph (which was used for facilitating the signaling and scheduling processes) to cell phones and computers, which can be traced back to early switching and relay systems.

 Mexican Train: rules of the domino game
If you are still unable to play, you must pass and place a penny on your train, which indicates that the other players are now allowed to add a domino to it, as an alternative to playing on their own train or the Mexican train.
If a player whose train has a penny manages to play a domino (either on their own train or elsewhere), this entitles them to remove the penny from their train, so that other players are no longer allowed to add to it.
If one or more players ends the train they play on their first turn with a double, then these doubles must be satisfied in order as soon as everyone has had their first turn - so beginning with the first player, who played the centre double.
