23 Captions For Train Pictures That Are Totally On Track

If you're filled with wanderlust, you know that it's not always about your final destination, but the journey of getting there that can be just as exciting.

If you're lucky enough to snag a window seat, you'll want to pack some captions for train pictures as well.

When I lived in New York City, I took the train to visit my friend in Boston, and it was a magical time. Sitting by the window, I listened to songs about traveling and imagined myself being the star of a music video as I gazed outside. I loved seeing the trees whiz on by like green blurs. Honestly, I felt like Harry Potter on the Hogwarts Express. It truly was a moment made for the 'Gram.

If you're planning a cross-country train trip soon, or even just taking the train home with the skyline in the background, you'll want to keep these 25 captions handy. You never know when your very own train music video or Harry Potter moment might arise as you snap a pic in a cute outfit waiting at the station with your luggage, or getting cozy in an overnight sleeper car.
