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.
