The '''Razor Train''' is a Rail transport|train designed and used by the Combine for transporting freight and prisoners between cities, Combine bases, and outposts.

==Overview==
Like the Hunter-Chopper and Combine APC, the Razor Train is an adaptation of human technology, redesigned with Combine technology and aesthetics. As with much of Combine technology and architecture, the Razor Train is large, mostly featureless, and imposing.

Razor Trains have been designed and built to work on human rail networks and are used for transporting cargo, human prisoners, and Stalkers. Notably, Razor Trains are used to transport human prisoners to Nova Prospekt, the Combine-controlled prison/laboratory. They also transport Stalkers and Overwatch Soldiers to the Citadel. 

Another disconcerting aspect of the Razor Train is its horn a distinctive bellow that announces the Train's arrival. This sound varies, however, as several times during ''Half-Life 2'' and its Episodes, they emit lower air horn blasts instead. In addition, both of these sounds are occasionally higher than normal, exhibited in chapters 3 and 7.

Razor trains are very fast-moving and completely unyielding to any object that may be on the tracks; they will simply ram their way through any obstacle blocking their path. This can range from other vehicles, Citizens and Rebels, and even Combine units. This may suggest that the trains are automated; however, all locomotives have what appear to be a driver's cab and a ladder leading up to it, located at the rear of the locomotive. This suggests the possibility that the trains are crewed, or can be operated manually if necessary.

As seen in the Highway 17 and Route Kanal chapters, the trains seem to carry smaller loads in rapid succession at high speed as opposed to fewer but more heavily loaded trains. Razor Trains also accompany human trains and are used on the same railway networks.

Razor trains are completely unarmed. However, they do occasionally serve as an environmental hazard, particularly during the chapters Route Kanal and Highway 17 (Chapter)|Highway 17.
