 If we picture a file as a train, the packets would be the individual wagons. Big train: several wagons, small train: few, maybe just one wagon. If we picture a file as a train, the packets would be the individual wagons. Big train: several wagons, small train: few, maybe just one wagon.
  
-Each packet is like an envelope sent by normal mail, with the actual data, part of the original file, inside. Outside, we have information that will allow TCP/IP to process the packet by extracting and merging it's inside data with the data from the other packets from the same file, in the correct order, in order to rebuild the file from it's packets.
