Railroad – A railroad, as a means of transportation, is a symbol of your ability to achieve your dreams. This particular dream symbol, however, focuses on the predetermined nature of your destiny. The railroad tracks only go in one direction and rarely split or change course. If you wanted to go somewhere that was off their predetermined course, you would have to leave the train and strike off on your own. This may be a sign of frustration that you are not in control of your own life. On the other hand, if you dream that you are building a railroad, this is a sign that you are succeeding in laying good plans for how you will accomplish your goals, and you will find success.
