We propose spatiotemporal solitons that consist of trains of short pulses. The pulses are collectively trapped in the transverse directions by a slow nonlinearity and each pulse is self-trapped in the longitudinal direction by a fast nonlinearity. We demonstrate numerically spatiotemporal bright pulse-train solitons (trains of light bullets) and temporally-dark spatiotemporal pulse-train solitons in an experimentally feasible scheme.
