    welcome to take this train

    "aboard" is only used for planes and ships

     

    No one says "Welcome to take this train" The grammar is not right for a start. Get on a train in England, America or Australia and you will hear the guard say "Welcome aboard". For example Welcome aboard the 5.15 service direct to London. Welcome aboard is the standard greeting when boarding any public service transport. We may even say it to people getting in our cars, lol!
