No, you must have watched the movie Young Einstien to get that theory right! If you listen to the part where they talk about this. Even if you could of have the power to take a step forward, you aren't traveling the speed of light. The train is. Thats like saying that since the world spins at 600mph, when you take a step, your going faster than that. It just doesn't work. If you don't belive me. Rent the movie.

: : : Wouldn't it make sense that we could go beyond the speed of : : : light??? The classic example: Theoretically-- If you were : : : on a train going the speed of light, if a train could go the : : : speed of light, and you took a step forward, you would be : : : traveling faster than the speed of light... Wouldn't that make sense?

: : Roger, you can't think of the question in those terms, because (1) The train could never go at the speed of light, and (2) As you approach the speed of light, your inertia approaches infinity, so it would take an infinite amount of energy to take that incremental step forward.
