If you want to stay on track with your transport jokes and puns then it's time you took on a ride on Kidadl's very special joke-omotive train.  

The first railway train journey took place over two hundred years ago; a steam locomotive in South Wales travelled nine miles on  21 February 1804.  Yet, no matter how much history they have, trains never get old and nothing gets us smiling faster than a full-speed train joke.
