Yeah, the bone with morph trick (I first saw this in a post by Mr. Rid) should do it for you. If the path is predefined, like say a precise curve that you want the train to follow, the process is a bit more complex. I came up with a technique some time back for that and wrote a tutorial (http://blog.allurefx.com/2009/06/lightwave-tutorial-animation-along.html) on it, that should give you some ideas.
