A train is a type of vehicle consisting of a series of connected vehicles that usually runs along a rail track to transport cargo or passengers.

Motive power for a train is provided by a separate locomotive or individual engines in a self-propelled multi-purpose installation. Although the historical steam engine dominates, the most common types of locomotives are diesel and electric, the latter are supplied with aerial wires or additional rails. Trains can also be pulled by horses that are pulled by an engine or water cable or wire winch, driven by gravity, or powered by pneumatics, gas turbines or batteries.

Train tracks usually consist of two rails, which are sometimes supplemented with additional rails, such as electrical conductors and rails. Monorails and maglev guideways are also used occasionally.

Passenger train includes passenger vehicles and can often be very long and fast. A wonderful and growing category of long-distance trains is the high-speed train. To achieve much higher performance at speeds above 500 km/h, Maglev’s innovative technology has been the subject of many years of research. The term “light rail” is sometimes used to refer to a modern tram system, but it can also mean an intermediate form between a tram and a train, similar to the high-speed heavy rail system. In most countries, the difference between a tram and a railway line is exact and defined by law.

Rail cars and machinery that used for the maintenance and repair of railways are called “maintenance of way” equipment; they can be assembled to support passenger trains. Similarly, specialized trains can be used to provide train maintenance services, such as waste collection or revenue.

There are different types of trains that are designed for specific purposes. A train may consist of a combination of one or several locomotives and wagons, or a self-propelled multi-purpose unit, or a random single or articulated wagon, called a wagon. Special types of trains that run on specially built “railway lines” are monorail, high-speed rail, magnetic, air, rubber, underground, cable and dental railways.

A passenger train consists of one or more locomotives and (usually) several cars. Alternatively, the train may consist solely of passenger cars, some or all of which are powered by electricity; this is known as “multiple units”. In many parts of the world, especially in the Far East and in Europe, high-speed railways are widely used for travel.

Freight trains consist of wagons or trucks, and not wagons, although some parcels and postal parcels (especially postal items) look like passenger trains. Trains can also be mixed with both passenger and truck vehicles. These mixed trains are likely to be used for services that are rarely performed when the provision of separate passenger and freight trains is not cost-effective, but the different needs of passengers and goods mean that they avoid it whenever possible. Special trains are also used to support rails; in some places this is called “road maintenance.”
