It's trivial:

/[ ] Dp Ap"house" /[ ] Dp Ap"train"

or you can do it in a fancier way:

%2[ ] Dp Ap"train" /[ ] Dp Ap"house"

or fancier yet:

%2[ ] valp /[ ] Dp Ap"house" vala Da Aa"train"

The first (trivial) example is probably the one you should actually use.
It assumes that the first word being inserted has no embedded space
characters in it, though.  If you are unsure of that (e.g., if you're
generating these rules from a wordlist, which might contain words with
embedded spaces), then you can use the fancier alternatives above.  Both
of them don't make this no-embedded-spaces assumption, and the
difference between them (as it relates to their use) is in that the
"fancier yet" example has the two words included in the rule in the
natural order.  Unfortunately, that rule has more commands and thus is
likely slower.
