A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp

A train transports a large group of people or products on a track laid by others. Dreaming of-a tram may .indicate that you have adopted the values ot a large group of people and therefore are on track.

Symbolic of going from one place to another

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

You are undergoing a pretty significant change or transformation. Any vehicle that moves you from one location to another signifies that big shifts are occurring.

A train is much faster than a car but slower than a plane. In this way, being on a train in your dream means that there is a medium amount of transformation going on in your life.

A train is a type of public transportation, so the changes that are taking place are more likely to relate to your public rather than your private life.

The state of the train, such as its age and the shape it is in, will offer you more distinctions to add to your interpretation.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

The train as a dream symbol is often linked with the Freudian interpretation of the train (phallus) going through the tunnel (vagina), representing intercourse. Yet even Freud gave trains alternative meanings (e.g., missing a train might represent missed opportunities or even missing one’s death (rather than missing intercourse). Being the engineer on a train and traveling smoothly down the track may mean staying “on track” in one’s life.

As with all such symbols, the dreamer’s prior associations with trains determines their meaning in a particular dream.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

Vision: In a man’s dream, a train is often a sign of fear—fear of having missed something.

The train you have missed in the dream is the equivalent of a missed opportunity in real life. Traveling in a train: you are advancing quickly in life. Watching a train leaving the station: a separation is unavoidable. Seeing a train: you will have to say goodbye to someone. Being on a train that goes through a tunnel: you are giving away one of your secrets. In a woman’s dream, a train is a sexual symbol, particularly if it is driving into a tunnel.

Depth Psychology: Riding in a train is symbolic of your life’s journey. You are changing your emotional bearings—don’t miss your connections! The lead engine symbolizes your vitality; the railroad cars your experiences and adventures: the tracks the values that guide you and give you direction.

The trip itself is a symbol of how your life will unfold. See Train Station.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

To see a train going by is a sign of missed opportunity To be riding on a train means you will achieve goals even though you don’t work especially hard towards them.

A freight train is indicative of manual labor, while a passenger train points to mental work. See also Engine.

Gypsy Dream Dictionary | Raymond Buckland

See Railroad Station. Vacation or business trip? Fear of “missing” the train; or it is high time (if you want to catch the train). See Haste. Developing ones personality, striving for success and being sociable. Fleeing from the present situation.

Are you observing the train or are you traveling on the train (you are either wanting to move or you are part of the movement). What is happening on the train and how would you characterize the action?

According to Freud, leaving on a train and traveling on a train means death. However, Freud suffered from a phobia about trains.

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

To see a train of cars moving in your dreams, you will soon have reason to make a journey. Dreams of riding a train symbolize your journey along life’s path, especially in the realm of romance.

If you dream of riding on top of a train, you will be or have been wasting time with an unpleasant companion, who you will eventually seek to avoid.

If you dream of missing a train, you may have missed an opportunity recently in real life.

Dreaming of driving a train is a good omen, meaning you are on the right course in your life.

To dream about people getting killed by a train, or of being in a train wreck, suggests that progress towards your goals is not going according to plans. This may be because you lack the self-confidence to pursue them whole-heartedly.

Psycho Dream Interpretation | Ella Freeman Sharpe

Dreams of a train signify that you have drive, momentum, and you are moving boldly through life by making connections with other people. This dream is a message either revealing to you that you are already on track you’re your goals and desires or if you are not, then this is a message for you to get on track with your goals and desires. Consider the feeling tone of this dream. See Conductor, Railroad Tracks and Track.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

see Journey

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

To see a train of cars moving in your dreams, you will soon have cause to make a journey.

To be on a train and it appears to move smoothly along, though there is no track, denotes that you will be much worried over some affair which will eventually prove a source of profit to you.

To see freight trains in your dreams, is an omen of changes which will tend to your elevation.

To find yourself, in a dream, on top of a sleeping car, denotes you will make a journey with an unpleasant companion, with whom you will spend money and time that could be used in a more profitable and congenial way, and whom you will seek to avoid.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

This dream symbol can be very complicated and its meaning is specific to the dreamer (as all dream symbols are).

If you normally take the train to work and it is a part of your daily experience, closer attention should be paid to the other details of the dream. Going on a train ride may be symbolic of your life’s journey.

If you are the engineer, you may be reassuring yourself in the dream state that you are in control of a specific situation or life in general.

The train could also be symbolic of your need to move on and to do things in an orderly and sequential manner. Freud said that the train is usually a phallic symbol and that a train going through a tunnel represents intercourse. Freud also said that there are other possibilities to this symbol.

For example if you missed the train in your dream, you may be fearful of missing important opportunities. Jung thought that the train ride represented the way a person moves and behaves just like everyone else and that you the dreamer may be striving for wholeness.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Your future is going forward. Given that the train follows a fixed route, this dream suggests that you are receiving help and direction in your vital life. As a means of collective transportation, on the other hand, this image symbolizes the need to share projects, ideas, and thoughts. From it you can deduce the need to speak more often with your loved ones, fleeing from the isolation that threatens you. On the contrary, being the only occupant of the train is a sign of great timidness or ego.

If you miss a train, it indicates the frustrated hope for change or the desire to leave a real situation, but without a clear sense of direction. For Jung, the figure of public vehicles expresses that the dreamer has not found her own way yet, and that her behavior is the same as everyone else’s. According to Freud, dreams that imply movement represent sexual relations. In fact, Freud believed the train to be a phallic symbol.

In antiquity, dreaming of voyages presaged a change in fortune. This would be better if the destination were at the top of a hill or of a mountain. And if the voyage continued at large in a straight line, the good luck would appear very soon in your life.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

If the train was standing in the station or on a side track, it forecasts an unexpected hitch or delay in your plans; otherwise, see Travel.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

If in the engine, tremendous power to accomplish your goals.

If a passenger train you are carrying many people, pulling them along, which may be an unnecessary weight.

If freight train, you are moving with a heavy load. See Passenger.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

As with trams and buses and other forms of public transport, dreams about trains suggest that you are no longer controlling your life and have become too dependent on someone or something else, such as your parents, your partner or a job. According to Freudians, trains with their huffing and pumping are phallic symbols, and a train entering a tunnel is a symbol of sexual intercourse. A broken-down or cancelled train may actually be a positive sign in dreamland, as it suggests that you are considering making your own way under your own steam. To dream of missing a train or passing a destination may also suggest missed opportunities.

If the train is stuck on a platform, this may suggest a problem that needs ironing out before any further progress can be made in waking life.

If the train makes an emergency stop, this warns against moving too fast and if the train stops at a crossing, this suggests the need for patience.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Freedom, especially in regard to instinctive drives.

Freudian: An emblem of the male penis, primarily when combined with tunnel imagery.

Similar to other vehicles in terms of movement and transitions (see Bus, Car, Horse).

Each car of the train may represent aspects of yourself, including hidden talents, knowledge, fears, hopes, and memories. So, exploring the train symbolizes introspection and integration of some of these portions.

For example, searching the caboose may symbolize routing out your feelings about death or endings.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

Going on a train ride may be symbolic of your life’s journey.

If you are the engineer, you may be reassuring yourself in the dream state that you are in control of a specific situation, or your life in general. Freud said that the train is usually a phallic symbol, and that a train going through a tunnel represents intercourse. Freud also said that there are other possibilities to this symbol.

For example if you missed the train in your dream, you may be fearful of missing important opportunities.

RESTRAINT / RESTRICTION

In addition to the meanings given under Imprison and Prison, there is the possibility that the dream is referring to restraints and restrictions in your external circumstances, or to those mental and physical limitations that begin to manifest themselves from the age of forty-five onwards. Restrictions and limitations may have the positive value of drawing

your attention from egotistic pursuits to things that matter more: for instance, loss of intellectual sharpness does not disqualify you from gaining self-knowledge; and the latter may be helped by the collapse of egotism. However, if you judge that the restrictions are purely negative, take steps to remove them or to find alternative supplies of satisfaction.

If neither of these options seems to avail and the only remaining option is to accept the inevitable, this may well be life’s way of reminding you of what is important in life.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

TRAIN STATION

Symbol: A train station is always a symbol of changes to come in your life or in interpersonal relationships.

Vision: Arriving at a train station: a decision made previously was correct.

If you want to go to the train station but the road is blocked: a few hurdles have to be overcome l>efore change is possible. Leaving a train station: try to determine if you have postponed an important decision for too long; it is time to make that decision now! If you are looking at a train station: a change in your life is imminent. Missing your train: you have also missed an opportunity in your life.

Depth Psychology: Train stations are important dream images. They show us a starting point for examining different goals we have set ourselves in life. Usually a train station means a new phase in your lite is about to start.

My Dream Interpretation

TRAIN TRACKS

Train tracks symbolize a desire for change or the imminent sense of danger that upcoming change portends.

If the train represents change itself, then the tracks connect to the possibility of shift and change that could be occurring but at present is not yet happening. Train tracks have a measure of danger connected to them because a train could come along at any moment, putting you in peril. In this way, a dream that takes place on train tracks could be pointing to the possibility that some dramatic change is on its way and, when it arrives, has the potential for causing fear or destruction.

The tracks that carry a train indicate all the places a train might go. One interpretation relates to the potential for movement and travel. There is a very powerful association with train tracks as a dividing line between classes, as in the “other side of the tracks.” Which side of the tracks are you on in your dream?...

The Bedside Dream Dictionary

TRAINS

A train will often highlight our attitude to social behaviour and relationships with other people. It will also clarify our attitude to ourselves.

A steam train would suggest that we feel ourselves to be somewhat outdated and old-fashioned but still viable, whereas an up-to-date electric turbo might suggest speed and efficiency. Catching the train shows we have been successful in having outside circumstances co-operate with us in achieving a particular goal, whereas missing the train indicates we do not have the resources to enable us to succeed in an appropriate way, either because we have forgotten something or because we have not been sufficiently careful. We fear that we will miss an opportunity. Equally, we may feel that external circumstances are imposing an element of control over us. Often dreams of missing a train and then catching either it or a later one, suggest that we are managing our inner resources better. Dreams of missing a train, alternating with those of catching one, show we are trying to sort out our motivations. Getting off the train before its destination or it has reached a station implies we are afraid of succeeding at a particular project. We do not appear to be in control. Getting off the train before it starts suggests that we have changed our mind about a situation in waking life. Railway lines and tracks will have significance as ways of getting us to our destination. Being conscious of the way the track runs ahead may give us an inkling as to what direction we are going. Recognizing the signals up ahead would have the same significance. Coming off the rails might suggest doing something inappropriate or of not being in control. Not wanting to be on the train might indicate we feel we are being unduly influenced by outside circumstances. Arriving at a station indicates we have completed a stage of our life journey. We may be ready for a new relationship with the world in general.

The carriages on a train suggest the various compartments or sections of our lives and the way we feel about them.

For example, if a carriage is untidy or dirty, we are aware that we need to ‘clean up’ an aspect of our lives.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

TRAINS

Like other dreams of public transport dreaming of travelling by train suggests you’re no longer in control of your life and have become too dependent on others.

• Has your job taken over your life or the needs of a partner or parent? Are you going off the rails or are you on track for success? • Missing a train signifies missed opportunities.

A stuck train suggests a problem needs to be sorted before further progress can be made.... The Premier in Dream Dictionary
