On the other hand, when I was a child, I always wanted to drive a train. My dream was never ralized . At least somebody was happy for a moment
Anyway, don´t trains have something like keys for starting up?

When I was a kid I "drove" an airplane (for only a few minutes, but it was in the air at 1200 m above ground). I will always remember that. My uncle was a train mechanic so my cousins had the chance of "driving" a train.

Usually you have to follow some procedures before being able to accelerate a train. Older trains are indeed much simpler, their commands being in fact just a bunch of electric switches.
Let's say that an older train will be easier to start up but harder to drive; modern ones require going through complex interfaces to start up, but then they're much easier to drive. I know how to do it and once I did, that's actually easier than driving a A/T car...

Main problem is that starting one without supervision will easily mean NOT activating safety devices first, thus having an out of control machine (s)trolling around.

The point is that the control room must be locked, not the commands.

This is the closest I got to driving a train: I managed to record the railway line I used weekly for 4 years from the train drivers window:


I advise you to lower the speakers volume in the first minute of the video. YouTube audioswap has some weird songs

When I uploaded the video I didn't have time to search for a good song, so I checked "random" on YouTube audio swap. Next day I didn't knew why my friends were asking me about THAT song
