Taxi / Cab-- Today, in practice, the two terms have blurred, because nearly all "cabs" are  "taxis," which is short for "Taxicabs." The two separate terms exist because  originally, there were horse-drawn "cabs" for hire. The problem was that cabmen  were notoriously dishonest, and cheated customers by claiming longer or shorter  distances traveled, or extorting money before leaving them in the right place.  Then, someone invented "taximeters" - devices that could calculate the correct  fare, based on time and distance; the fare would accumulate based on a clock  when stopped - by distance traveled when moving. Cabs with taximeters were  called "taximeter cabs." Eventually, automobiles were invented. Some automobiles  were used as "cabs" - for hire, but without a taximeter. In 1907, when  taximeters on automobiles finally took hold in London and New York, they called  them "taxicabs" - sh


Train Rail Rail Transport is also known as train transport. It is a means of transport, on  vehicles which run on tracks (rails or railroads). It is one of the most  important, commonly used and very cost effective modes of commuting and goods  carriage over long, as well as, short distances. Since this system runs on metal  (usually steel) rails and wheels, it has an inherent benefit of lesser  frictional resistance which helps attach more load in terms of wagons or  carriages. This system is known as a train. Usually, trains are powered by an  engine locomotive running on electricity or on diesel. Complex signaling systems  are utilised if there are multiple route networks. Rail transport is also one of  the fastest modes of land transport. Description: Rail transport has emerged as one of the most dependable modes of  transport in terms of safety. Trains are fast and the least affected by usual  weather turbulences like rain or fog, compared to other transport mechan


Cruise A cruise ship is a Luxury Vessel that is used to take passengers on a pleasure  voyage in a journey that is as much a part of the experience as the various  destinations on the way. In contrast to an ocean liner that transports  passengers from one point on the globe to the other often across the oceans, a  cruise ship or a cruise liner as it is known by most, takes the people on board  to a round trip that is of varied duration, from a single day to possibly a week  and culminates at the originating port. This is a very refreshing mode of  enjoyment and recreation, which relaxes the mind and replenishes energies to a  great extent. History The present day form of cruising can be traced back to the beginning of the   twentieth century when the transoceanic traveling was at its zenith. The only  mode of transport was the ships so the different companies that were in this  business offered the best services to compete in the market. These ocean liners  with
