American Sign Language:  "train" (railway train)

If you mean "train" as in "practice" (train for an event), see instead ► PRACTICE


TRAIN as in: "choo choo" train. (A railway train).


Both hands are in "H" handshapes (or loose "h" handshapes).  The left hand stays stationary and represents the train tracks.  The right one moves forward and back along the tracks.


 What does “train-gone” mean?  We use this sign to mean "you missed it" and we aren't going to take the time to rehash the story so you can know what we are talking about.  You might see this sign if you show up in the middle of a conversation or near the end of a conversation and ask what is being talked about.
