All aboard! You know, I have a history with trains. It's not exactly... the best history. Of course, anytime a Pegasus is on a train it's a bad time. It'd be much better to fly there, after all. So once you get a pegasus on a train... there's already been some problem. Of course, not all train trips are the result of such issues, and many ponies commute via train every day. The train from Ponyville to Canterlot isn't that long a trip, after all.
Taking a train for work, or for play, the experience of travel itself is quite extraordinary. Of course, some ponies are less concerned with train tracks and more concerned with pain trains. Err... that is to say, no pain, no gain, that's why you train! Physical endurance, mental agility, or the stamina to push ahead. Ponies find proper training regimes of exercise, study, and more in order to better themselves. Now, this is the type of training I can get behind! Go through a couple years of training and soon enough they'll stop calling you a scrawny colt and start calling you a moderately less scrawny stallion! Err... there's that personal history creeping in again...
But we all know why we're here. A vigorous regime of drawing ponies to best train our creative minds and physical skills. Be that training on a train, or in a plane, or in a box, with a fox, on a bag of rocks, the artists below have stayed on track and come into station (And no, they will not eat your Green Eggs and Ham, regardless of physical locale or environmental factors). So wait for the luggage car to get unpacked, and let's take a look at the new arrivals to roll into the station.
