Not to be confused with Siege Train.

A train is a form of rail transport consisting of a series of connected vehicles that generally run along a railroad (or railway) track to transport passengers or cargo. In the Warhammer World, trains were first invented by the Dwarfs during their Silver Age.[1a]

Dwarf Train

Known Trains

  • Grimgrandel - Hosted in the Grimbeard Station near the Black Fire Pass is a Dwarf armored-train.[2a]
  • Warprail - Clan Skyre has been attempting to build a warpstone-powered train to run through the Under-Empire. However they are limited by the amount of wood and iron needed to construct the rails, the sabotage of other Great Clans and the instability of the train's engine. When it works, however, the Warprail is the fastest and most efficient mode of transportation in the Under-Empire.[4a][5a]

Dwarf Train Station

Possible Trains

  • Vedenza's Artillery Train - An artillery train made of brass and carrying cannons and bolt throwers operated in the Tilean city-state of Vedenza.[3a] However, it's unknown whether this is a train that travels on rails.
