Until I was 11 I used to think that travelling on the train under the English Channel would be like in an aquarium where you would be able to see fish swimming casually around you.

Firemen start fires. I saw a program about steam trains and the person who started and stoked the fire on the engine was called a fireman.

When I was younger, ok, not that young, when I was a Teenager, I went on the Eurostar from London to Paris and was disappointed to find that most of the journey took place in a dark tunnel. I was expecting portholes in the tunnel so you could see the water and the fish.....

I thought that the one railroad used by all the trains of the organization was entirely two tracks, and the trains are lined up and continuously go in a circle, backing up at the turning point to get on to the other track.

In my area, passenger trains run in the day time, and freight trains run at night, so I thought there were only passenger trains, never seeing the freight trains and all. I have always heard the horns on the freight trains and night, and I thought they were just the passenger trains for many years, until I eventually discovered that they sound completely different than the horns on the passenger trains during the day. I started going crazy wondering what those horns really were, and I thought that maybe they weren't even trains. Luckily, I am now a teen, and I stay up later than I used to. I sometimes go outside at night and see the freight trains go by, realizing that they were the sources all along.

At the end of the underground line the train would disappear, and a new train would be made out of thin air to follow on the opposite direction.

I used to believe that the trains in Thomas the Tank Engine were real, but rare and special, and that other trains were "regular" or "ordinary" trains that didn't have a face.

I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet on a train, everything was just dumped onto the track. I was always careful not to use the bathroom while the train was stopped at a station.

When I was a kid I always used to wonder how a train turned to go in the opposite direction. I always believed that there was some huge space where the train could turn around

When I was learning about the underground railroad in elementary school, I always imagined that it was really underground. I couldn't wait to, someday, go walk in the underground railroad.

I used to think that trains had a big eye on the front (the light) and they could see people along side of the track. My brother in law had me believing that trains would chase you through the yard and then leap back on the track if they wanted to. When my sister and her husband moved right beside a railroad track, I was terrified to go visit.

My Grandfather and dad were talking about the trains near his hometown when I was 6, and he said that "They can lift the empty carts onto the track with a pitchfork" and although now I'm pretty sure he meant to say forklift I spent the next few years thinking a farmer put train carts onto the track with his pitchfork.

When i was younger, and i didn't understand how trains and subways worked. i would never know how they could have one train going one way, and another train going the other.

i used to think that they had people waiting at the end of the track, to take the train off, and turn it around, so it could go back the way it just came from.
