Chasin' Wild Trains is the thirteenth studio album by Kim Carnes, released in 2004. It was Carnes' first full-length album since 1991's "Checkin' Out the Ghosts" and her first to be released both in the U.S. and internationally since 1988's "View from the House". Chasin' Wild Trains was originally released by the Sparky Dawg Music label in the U.S. and later re-issued internationally by Dutch label Corazong with two bonus tracks. The album did not chart, however.
