Fun Fact September 15, 2021.

All aboard, unless you have this phobia.  Siderodromophobia, or the fear of trains, is a broad diagnosis that includes all fears related to trains. Some people fear crashing, while others are afraid of the lack of control.  According to Very Well Mind dot com, If you have siderodromophobia, you might be afraid only of traditional railroads, or your fear may encompass subways and monorails as well. Some people fear only subways or monorails, and not traditional railroads, but this is believed to be rare.  Although it doesn’t have an official name, some people only fear train tracks.  That fear is typically rooted in a fear of being hit by a train or being pushed onto the tracks.  People who have this fear are particularly anxious on subway platforms, which makes perfect sense.
