What are possible meanings for dreams of trains?
The symbolism of trains can be created by the fact that they’re interlinked rail cars pulled by an engine. That can symbolize a job or duty with interlinked responsibilities or people, and the leader is the engine that makes it move and gets things done. It can be a metaphor for leading an endeavor and pulling other people along.
Trains take you places, especially toward distant destinations, a metaphor for distant places you want to reach in your life. For someone just starting college, graduation is far off. For someone just starting a family, raising the kids to adulthood is a distant objective. A train is a great metaphor for a family because both are interlinked, with a head of the family who pulls everyone along and determines the direction they go together.
For example, a young man who’s about to graduate from college dreams about being at a big, festive gathering of people at a train yard. A marching band plays as people walk one at a time through an open, empty train car. Each person gets a moment in spotlight before moving on. It symbolizes graduation and moving to the next phase of life.
Physical movement in a dream can symbolize personal movement in your life, and a train is going in only one direction. For example, you want to avoid someone but have no choice but to run into the person. It’s inevitable, just as there’s no stopping a speeding train.
Symbolism can be created by the limited options for a train’s movement because it runs on tracks. For the same reason, trains can symbolize a “one-track mind” and similar ideas related to being forced to go in a certain direction or having only one option in mind. Trains and tracks can symbolize “staying on track,” meaning staying focused and heading toward a goal.
Trains run on schedules, and another word for schedule is routine. Breaking a routine can be symbolized as a train going off its track.
For ideas about what a train station can symbolize, see: Airport.
A train can be a wordplay for “in training.”

Non-scary kind of random post-apocalyptic dream
So I woke up today from a strange kind of post-apocalyptic dream, and I was thinking about it all day. I was hoping anybody had any ideas of potential meanings, just for fun.
I was living in a this street with half-abandoned houses. It was kind of up a hill, old Europe-y vibe. the houses were kind of colorful though, even though some were fully crumbled, and even our house was kind of falling apart. We did live in the "poor" part of town though. I found this out in the dream when I had to go to the rich part for my job and it was full of all-intact white houses, a bit too pristine. they were all fully lived in too. We also moved houses in the dream, to a slightly bigger house someone from our group discovered to be empty - but just across the street from the old house, still in the poor part of town. I vaguely remember being afraid of leaving someone behind, but that person chose to go somewhere else.There were about 4 or 5 pairs living in this new bigger house (just across the street, looked like an abandoned shopping mall).
Anyway, the main thing about this post-apocalyptic world is that a lot of people became infected with this thing. Anytime people were infected, they would get paired with someone else who was also also infected. From this pair however, only one person could transform into something (a hybrid between an animal and a monster, kind of like pokemon I guess), the other person looked normal - they just now had this connection. Think of the movie "the golden compass". Uninfected people were neither paired nor could transformed. This street, and actually entire city was mostly made up of infected people though. I was also infected, and sometimes I was the normal person in the pair, others I was the one turning.
We would all go out to do normal things during the day, the only thing is that we had to be careful not to be seen (this also happened when we were moving). This was part of the routine though, and it was like nothing was wrong.
For some reason, at some point I had to go to a different city. Everybody was worried about me but I was totally relaxed at first. I started walking, but when I got to stand below a highway bridge I started to worry because I remembered that in other cities people were scared of the infected people, and I were prejudiced as well. I noticed the area below the bridge looked abandoned, had a bunch of debris, and was also partially flooded. When I noticed the flooding was not that shallow, I started panicked a bit about drowning or getting lost. My pair though turned into what I can only describe as giant fluffy water dragon and I was like "oh yeah, this is super lucky, I forgot for a sec they could do that".
We rode in the water until we got into this half-abandoned, half-ruined subway/train, and went looking for a seat. As soon as I sat down, I looked to the side and saw a bunch of half-dead people. I froze. They were the normal, non-infected people and I was afraid of what they would think when they saw my pair.
The train had started moving though so I couldn't just leave, and I decided to pretend everything was fine and hope they wouldn't notice.
I noticed a few of them were starting to look ovei in my direction, and they seemed intrigued, but not angry or anything else, so I was relieved again.
Then i woke up.
So I woke up today from a strange kind of post-apocalyptic dream, and I was thinking about it all day. I was hoping anybody had any ideas of potential meanings,...

Last night I dreamed I was going on a train ride to nowhere particular and ended up in a room full of strangers feeling lost. The train was more like a ferry inside than an actual train, I asked a young woman for directions on how to get of a train and she scolded me for being a “baby” and let me know I should figure it out for myself (she was french speaking?) I finally got of tha trainnd looked back a lot of people were running off of a ferry taking part in a ultra run, I decided to run with them but got checked for ID at a checkpoint and had to turn back, when I did, a grey Great Dane with no eyes blocked my path and I threw 3 bones to get it to go away. I finally got the owner to take it from me and left. I woke up just after getting away from the dog? Any ideas on the meaning this?

I was in a underground train station with a black suitcase.
So in the dream I was in an underground train station. I was wearing a black pencil skirt with a brown floral blouse. I was also wearing my hair up in a bun and was wearing short black heels. I could see half of the train stopped. The other half was a wall that you needed to turn to see the rest of the train. I had my arms crossed against my chest with the suitcase in between. Now that I remember I was also wearing 3 blush pink bracelets. I think they were round crystals or beads but they looked like rose quartz color. I also had them in my right hand.When I was walking I had an uneasy feeling. I wasn’t scared I was just uneasy. Like something was going to happen. Then the dream ended. If someone could interpret this it would be nice. Thanks to anyone that replies. Have a good day. 😊😊😊

Running from Nazis then dream turns into video game
I think I was a maintenance worker or something. I wasn't a Nazi but I was working for them. There was this Nazi commander guy who was following me around. I didn't want to talk to him so I tried to shake him by running around this desert. I was supposed to ride a train with him but I had other plans. I ran down a train tracks and he chased after me.
The dream took a surreal turn when tha trainracks went around a rocky bend and suddenly stopped. And then I saw the desert suddenly dropped off like I was outside the bounds of a video game map. I could see the bottom of the skybox when I looked over the edge. I had no choice but to turn around and I found myself in a mining camp. The Nazi commander was talking to some miners and there was a quest icon over his head. And this mining camp was closed in, I couldn't go anywhere else. There was also nothing to do. So I assumed the only way to progress was to take a quest from the Nazi commander. But I didn't, I just ignored him and wandered the mining camp until I woke up.
