The fascination with trains goes way back to our childhoods. No matter how old you are, there's most likely a part of you that never lost that passion.

Sheldon from the TV sitcoms "The Big Bang Theory" and "Young Sheldon" are a great example of that. Both versions of the character are obsessed with trains.

He even had his own train set as a kid, which he absolutely loved. And despite both being fictional TV shows, the point is still valid.

People love trains. Old trains, modern ones, or even abandoned tracks. There's just something about it that draws our interest and attention.

In fact, there's so much love for trains that there's an actual show that travels the country. And if you're one of those train fanatics, there's great news for you.
