    It is an airplane, not a train. During performing the song, a model plane flew across the stage, crashing on the other side.

    I've read in a Pink Floyd bio it's about birth. You guys are all wrong.

    You are all wrong! The guy is running to catch a train! You don't run to catch an airplane! The train then leaves the station (hence the steady beat and cadence). The train is buzzed by the spaceship, then the first missile is fired at the train; fantastic simulated sound of the missile missing the train; then a short time later the spaceship fires the second missile and bingo; a direct hit and explosion!

    If you listen to the first part, a man is running to catch a plane. You hear voice over an intercom relaying flight information and sound effects emulating planes flying.

    Then the engines of a plane preparing to and also taking off. Next is the obnoxious sound of a man laughing in the plane that is taking off which is the flight the first guy is running to catch. The obnoxious guy sees the first man running down the terminal and laughs.

    He laughs all the way until the plane crashes! Then you hear the guy arriving at the terminal. Probably thinking holy shit I could have been on that flight and dead!
