Whether it's an anime that takes place on a train, or an anime that's actually about a train, this list has some excellent choices for train anime. Have you seen Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress? The most exciting scenes are when the characters ride a train from one sanctuary to the next, all while defending themselves from flesh eating monsters that are plentiful in number.
