1.He travels by train.

2.He met Maria on the train.

3.He read the today's newspaper on the train.

4. Il mangera sur l'avion - He will eat on the plane.

I know my first and second sentences are fine. How about the third and fourth sentences? Would you say in or or this context?

It would be correct to say I saw him in the train provided that I was in the platform.

I was in the platform waiting for another train and the man in question was seated in another train.

It could be that he was in a movin train too.

How about the prepositions in the third and fourth sentences?

I appreciate your comments.

I would be inclined to say 2, 3, and 4 just as you have.

However, in the train/plane is not exactly incorrect, and might even be preferable in certain contexts.

I would probably always say on the platform.

I forgot about that instance...

I thank both Marius and davkett for the replies.

I like the picture you have posted.

It should be 'on' the platform. I have made a silly error.

So if you are on the platform and a person known to you is sitting inside the train, you will say I saw him/her in the train.
