DREAM DICTIONARY - Train :Railways move in a fixed line from Point A to Point B. So in some way they link to such a meaning. They maybe show you going about your life doing the same things and following a routine continuously. The dream maybe about a sudden change in that routine or about a need to change. In another sense it maybe about other people and their stubbornness in following only one line. It may show that they only think about one thing and are unable to act differently.
