And there is the headlight, shining far down the track, glinting off the steel rails that, like all parallel lines, will meet in infinity, which is after all where this train is going.

WHAT DOES HEADLIGHT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

headlight

Headlamp

A headlamp is a lamp attached to the front of a vehicle to light the road ahead. Headlight is a synonym for headlamp. Headlamp performance has steadily improved throughout the automobile age, spurred by the great disparity between daytime and nighttime traffic fatalities: the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that nearly half of all traffic-related fatalities occur in the dark, despite only 25% of traffic travelling during darkness. Other vehicles, such as trains and aircraft, are required to have headlamps. Bicycle headlamps are often used on bicycles, and are required in some jurisdictions. They can be powered by a battery or a miniature generator. Additionally automotive night vision systems may improve viewability without requiring brighter headlamps.
