10 Video Games With Coolest Trains

If you’re going somewhere, you might as well do it in style. So get on one of these great trains in a video game.

I love trains. The Iron Horse has always been a sign of the wild frontier. Even though trains aren’t the best way to travel these days, there’s something romantic about coal engines that keeps people interested. No matter if they are locomotives, bullet trains, maglev trains, or hellfire-belching specters from the afterlife, trains are a sign of strength, perseverance, and fierce progress (the last of which happens weirdly often).

Trains aren’t as common in games as cars, planes, or spaceships, but that just makes them more impressive when they do show up. This is especially true when they have special features like living quarters or heavy weapons.
