Just an etymological question: how did TOG become Train, it does not seem cognate with any other language: unless it is with "to tow" in English?

Apparently they are not really etymologically connected. "Train" came from Latin (like French "train"), "tog" — from Germanic languages (like German "Zug"). I'm not an expert though, I followed it through Wiktionary :)
