    I was the tallest passenger among those who travelled on the train

    "Travel" needed to be changed to the past tense. Travel therefore becomes travelled.

    "Train" needs to be preceded by a pronoun. If you were talking about a single, specific train, this pronoun is "the".

    Not a teacher.
