Train Above the City is the ninth and penultimate album by English alternative rock band Felt, released in 1988.

The album does not feature frontman Lawrence in any musical capacity. He provided only the track titles. The music, all instrumental and in a jazz style, was written and performed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer/percussionist Gary Ainge.

Reviewing the album for Melody Maker, Simon Turner said it "bears no obvious relationship to anything else they've done."[1]
