    Everyone loves railroads. Children often make model trains and railroad crossings of their own, to play with at their leisure. Ties are used as the base for tracks. And many adults love pouring over train schedules, timetable, and maps. It's easy to become immersed in the allure of train culture, but few people really know much about the way trains work. Trains travel along a set of tracks, or a rail road. These tracks often intersect at railroad crossings. They are also often served by rail road stations. At one of these stations, locomotives slow and eventually come to a complete stop. The conductors of these trains depending on what type of train they operate can then go about their business. If they operate a freight, or cargo, train, they may begin unloading their goods. These goods can then be hauled somewhere else, or shipped away to another location. If they operate a passenger carrier, they can begin preparing for the arrival of ticketed passengers. They can see to it that everyone who hopes to board the train has a metro card, or a fare card, and they can see to it that all of the passengers are headed toward the correct destination. Trains are a mode of rapid transit transportation. They, therefore, are capable of traveling at great speeds. They follow a complex schedule and a set of maps and timetables. They rely on signs to guide them to the correct station. They can be either publicly or privately owned. Trains are truly interesting machines, and they are certainly worth learning a little more about!
