How do trains stay on the rails around curves or when the track is bumpy? Is it just because of their weight?

    There weight definitely plays a role, but train tracks are built to resist inertia in turns, and careful design is incorporated with speed maximums around such turns – tracks are also graded to a point where bumps shouldn’t endanger it from coming off track. So essentially, in answer to your question, well planned design and speed requirements.
