This train thing , to me at least, is one of those things that when I heard you can't ride them in the game I was disappointed. Then when I get over it and stopped to think, I realized that in NONE of the GTA games did I ever ride the trains after the novelty of it wore off in GTA III, which took all of three rides.
I honestly believe that the only reason most of us care about not being able to ride the trains in SR is simply because we can't do it. And if we could, we might try it out once or twice to peep the accompanying cinematic, but I think that would be about it.
Exactly. I am in this game to drive, kill, run around like a maniac, and do a crap load of other insanely fun thing. The last thing I want to do is get on a train. Would it be nice if the feature was there for those who like it? Yeah. And perhaps Volitions will add it again later on.
My gut feeling tells me that Volitions wanted to make this game as over the top fun as they could, and that they left out trains, not to deprive us of anything, but because they felt that most gamers think like I do and simply don't care about the trains. ;)

I used the trains a lot in SR1 for travel. I was pretty disappointed when I went to use one for the first time in this game... Searched the map... What? No train marker? Son of a...
Luckily we have cruise control on the cars now, so at least I don't have to constantly hold the button down as I drive from on end of the map to the other.
