They are always found on a track and always with at least 1 locomotive, though there are several different freight cars,
They are a Monorail, except for the subways which run on normal tracks.
They always move around the track they are on at a slow speed while making a chugging noise
The these are all the different types of trains
Locomotive: A locomotive, the part that moves the train, it has a very odd appearance, with what seems to be either cannons or vents on the front. Without the locomotive, the train can not move.
Boxcar: a moving box not really anything particularly special about it.
TankCar: A red tank car, Explodes violently when destroyed
Target Car: a triangular car\locomotive with a target on the side, only appears in the training arena.
Flat Car: a flat car, usually armed with twin 20mm cannon turret or a guided missle launcher
Subway: A subway train that only appears in a few missions where you have to destroy them.
The table Below shows the arenas that the trains appear in and what cars they are pulling
T= Target Car
FMG= Flatcar with 20mm cannons
FM= Flat Car with Guided Missles
|Training Area||8 target cars||No|

|Panama upper level||L,B,Fmg,L,B,Fmg,L||Yes|
Strangely there are train tracks in the Valhalla Arena, but no trains.
The train in New York contains a weapon up, and must be destroyed to get it,
unfortunately it does not respawn.
The trains in the panama arena respawn just seconds after they are destroyed.
If a car behind the locomotive is destroyed, the locomotive will continue to go around the track and when it colides into the rest of the train it will smash through it , destroying the cars but causing almost no damage to itself. this is an effective method to dearm the trains in the Panama arena
Destroying a tank car usually destroys the rest of the train along with it.
The trains seemed to be configured differently in the PS1 version.
