Dream Theater, Train of Thought

For Dream Theater fans preferring the band’s metal side to its keyboard extravagance, 2003’s Train of Thought was manna from heaven.

From the start, the music featured the some of the hardest of DT’s music to date, reminding fans what a potent heavy metal combination guitarist John Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy could be.

The cover also showed a darker side of the band. Featuring the art of noted photographer Jerry Uelsmann, it skillfully used black-and-white imagery to reflect the eerie nature of much of the lyrical content.

But that damn eye is ALWAYS looking at me. Somebody make it stop.

I am looking for an album cover that features the band on the front of a train. Would you happen to know of who that is/was? I am thinking classic rock band, maybe zepplin...
