A train was a grouping of vehicles that moved, particularly over metal rails, transporting passengers or freight.
On Earth Edit
The Fifth Doctor, after landing his TARDIS at a train station in Oxfordshire on 11 June 1925, mentioned to his companions that he had always wanted to drive a train as a boy. (TV: Black Orchid) The same was true of Henry Gordon Jago. (AUDIO: Higson & Quick)
On 1 September 1939, Cecelia Pollard was convinced to board the Vienna to Calais Transcontinental Express by Celestial Intervention Agency agent Torvald instead of committing suicide. President Romana II, Leela, Narvin, Mephistopheles Arkadian and Torvald all boarded the train because of Cecelia's presence. (AUDIO: A Blind Eye)
In Bristol in the 2010s, a train almost ran over a defenseless and externally shrunken TARDIS, which had the Twelfth Doctor inside. Later, Clara Oswald and Rigsy used another train in an attempt to trample a group of the Boneless. However, the plan failed as the Boneless turned the train two-dimensional. (TV: Flatline)
Miss Quill wondered if Dorothea Ames' metaphysical engine "buzzed [her] atomically" to the Peak District. She pointed out the area's relative proximity to Coal Hill Academy by saying, "There are trains for that." (TV: The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill Did)
In 2080, Ileana de Santos and her associates took a private monorail train from Rio de Janeiro to a ranch house in the Amazon desert. The Fifth Doctor, with some difficulty, materialised the TARDIS in the train's baggage car. (AUDIO: Loups-Garoux)
Alternate timelines Edit
On other planets Edit
In a heavily polluted city on an Earth-like world, the Fourth Doctor assisted the Guardian Angels in finding the correct train track which would lead them out of the city and to the countryside. However, when he arrived there in the TARDIS and waited for them, they never arrived, and he concluded that they didn't make it, which was perhaps just as well since the countryside was just as polluted as the city itself. (COMIC: End of the Line)
In the Matrix on Gallifrey, the Fourth Doctor found himself trapped on a recreation of a train line, his foot caught in the tracks after the points changed, while Goth drove a train toward him. The Doctor freed himself and jumped clear at the last second, and the train vanished. (TV: The Deadly Assassin)
On the Dalek Foundation world of Sunlight 349, journalist Lillian Belle was gathering information at the site of a head-on collision between two trains. When a Dalek arrived on the scene, it murdered one of the drivers (Mr Sezman) and the medics who rescued him from the wreckage and left. (PROSE: The Dalek Generation)
Through space Edit
The Eighth Doctor kept a model train set in his TARDIS, which he constructed over a period of several years until it eventually became a microcosm of its own. (PROSE: Model Train Set, Vampire Science, Genocide)
