Did you know that the word train comes from the Old French trahiner, which means “pull, draw”, and that the first trains were pulled by horses? Did you know that France’s TGV (translation: "high speed train", gotta love the French propensity for naming things) has achieved a maximum speed of 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph)?

Why would anyone write a non-controversial article about trains just for hits when "TOP 10 REASONS *insert popular thing here* SUX" would instantly get like 1,000x the hits?
