When I was a kid, me and my neighbourhood buddies often played in the trees and bushes that were growing beside the railway embankment. Climbing the trees, building tree houses...

For some reason we thought we were not allowed to be playing there. So every time we would hear a train coming, someone would yell "PHOTO!!"

And we would all quickly turn our backs to the passing train, covering our faces with our hands.

We believed the engine driver would take our pictures and report us to the police :-)

I saw a shop called "London Underground" in Shrewsbury, and I assumed that it was actually a London Underground station! (I was born in London, so I had travelled on the tube before)

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.

I used to believe that St Pancras station was actually St Pancreas. It wasn't until I was corrected - at age 21 - that I realised what I was saying...

We used to live a couple miles from a big lake and on the other side of it ran a railroad track. I was very small, but remember the time I heard the train and kept watching for it to come around the curve in the road that ran in front of our house.

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.

I used to think that in order for a train to move that an airplane would have to fly over the train first!

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.
