Trains   

1     Have you ever ridden a train?
 
2     A train has many cars linked together. The first car of a train is called a locomotive. It has an engine. It gives the train power to move along a railroad track. When a train travels, it may carry many people. It can also take a lot of goods. If a train is to take people to different places, it is called a passenger train. If a train is to ship goods to different places, it is called a freight train.
 
3     About two hundred years ago, a man in England made the first locomotive. He used a steam engine. His locomotive was able to pull ten tons of iron, seventy people, and five wagons for about nine miles. Later on, another man in England made the first train that ran at regular times.
