It is examined how Einstein's Train Thought Experiment leads to fallacies, in spite of ones interpretation of this thought experiment. This paper presumes that the reader has read my other paper ?A Brief Overview of SRT? as well as ?Relativity?, by Einstein. This is especially important because the ideas proposed in this paper are of a very speculative nature, and one should know the theory before one begins to speculate with regards to the interpretations of the theory. The appendix presents a brief outline of the argument of this paper.
