Playing crazy on a train… Not smart at any age.

Playing crazy games with trains can be plenty of fun.  When you’re a child – and the trains are made of toys.  When the trains are real locomotor-driven metal vehicles, it’s time to behave yourself – in other words, all hands in the carriage and absolutely no touching the controls.  Whether you’re 1 or 100, playing with those kinds of trains is not okay.  Playing on them – even less acceptable.

Playing the fool with your friends on a moving train is particularly dangerous after the age where you can actually walk independently. Moving doors can crush you, rocking train cars can tip you over, and angry passers-by that you can’t stop mooning or bobbing-and-weaving around can lose every remnant shred of their patience, rear up and kick your ass.

Reasonable distance from the train... acceptable.

Walking on the rails... not so much.
