Train started their career in 1994 but gained mainstream success with their debut album, Train, which was released in 1998 with the hit "Meet Virginia"Their second album, Drops of Jupiter (2001), brought the band stupendous acknowledgment in a short time of period.

The band currently comprises trio Patrick Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar, vocals) and Scott Underwood (drums, percussion).

Following the dissolution of his Led Zeppelin cover band, singer Patrick Monahan left his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania in late 1993. He resettled in California and crossed paths with Rob Hotchkiss, who performed in coffee houses and local clubs.

The two shared lead vocals, with Hotchkiss on guitar and harmonica, and Monahan playing percussion, including a modified conga attached to a kick-drum pedal. Hotchkiss had been the lead singer for LA-based Apostles.

After deciding to form a full band, the duo recruited Jimmy Stafford on guitar, Charlie Colin on bass, and Scott Underwood on drums, thus solidifying Train's lineup in 1994.

Train attempted to get signed under Columbia Records in 1996 but was rejected. Subsequently, the band decided to release its first self-titled CD independently.

By 1997, they were touring nationally, opening concerts for bands such as Barenaked Ladies, Hootie & the Blowfish, Cracker and Counting Crows.
