- Horses and people were used instead of an engine. Later, they started connecting trolleys with each other for greater efficiency.
- The first steam engine train. Thick sooty smoke pours from it. You ride at a measly speed of about 30 mph.
- You transfer to a comfortable modern train, and it’s one of the fastest types in existence – Maglev.
- You're sitting on a soft chair as the train travels so quietly and smoothly that you wouldn’t even know you’re currently moving about 268 mph.
- We’ve arrived in Edinburgh. You go to a special station to catch an equally special train. In the restaurant, you'll be served local dishes of the region you’re currently passing through.
- We’re in England, at the railway station in the small town of Snaith. There are no ticket machines, no ticket offices, not even taxi parking.
- Tracks and train wheels are steel. There's very little friction between these smooth steel parts. It's less than between your car’s rubber tire and the road, in fact!
- As soon as the train rises uphill, its weight distribution changes, the frictional force weakens, and the wheels begin to spin in place. It can go up an elevation of only 2°.
- You, along with 250,000 other daily commuters, enter the Stockholm Central Station. And this station is extraordinary: it recycles all those people’s body heat!
- Japan. You arrive at the station with pinpoint accuracy. Seriously, the average delay time is under a minute for the entire year!]-
- Cambodia. If you love adventure, then you'll appreciate a ride on the Norry bamboo train. People gather wide bamboo slabs and lay them on a square frame with wheels.
