*** The [[SuperiorFirepower LGM-118 Peacekeeper]] was also planned to be rail-based, but the UsefulNotes/ColdWar ended before this could occur and the missiles were kept in silos. (Eventually the entire Peacekeeper program was scrapped; the rockets were used to make orbital launchers.)

** The base 500 series not enough? Behold the [[http://www.type500-eva.jp/en 500 TYPE EVA]], a special trainset commissioned by no less than HideakiAnno himself to jointly celebrate the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Sanyō Shinkansen and the 25th anniversary of the first airing of ''NeonGenesisEvangelion''. The train's exterior is decorated like Shinji's Unit 01, while the interior has decals and models of the many characters (including a few GendoPose blinds hidden in some of the cars), and there is even a mockup of an Eva's cockpit that lets you fight Angels on the rails in real time! Originally scheduled to run from November 2015 to spring 2017, this train's popularity has ensured that it will stay on the tracks for at least one more year until spring 2018.

* ''Train X Train''(AKA "Train + Train") Manga, might not the best known example, but it has School Trains. [[MeaningfulName School Trains]] are trains that are high schools. ''High schools''! Harboring large dorms and going around the world in full years [[ForScience for education!]] Not to mention that the Protagonist's school was actually converted from a [[CoolStarship Space ship]] frame and by end of the series, the locomotive was modified into a spaceship again.

** Solar Monorail Chirmirajen, a train that can go anywhere in the world, but is primarily used to transport personnel and guests to and from the [[ThatsNoMoon Daystar...the setting's sun.]] It is also intelligent, having a rather impulsive and heroically inclined autopilot, and it is quite literally powered by hope (its fuel is hopeful prayers directed to Heaven in general or the sun in particular).

* In 1938, Southern Pacific introduced a train to run the Los Angeles to San Francisco west-coast route, and the result was known as the "Daylight" because in summer months, it could make the full trip entirely within daylight hours. They served until 1957. They also were described, quite rightly, as "the most beautiful steam-trains ever made". Only one Daylight train was saved from the scrapyard: number 4449, which in 1976, was restored, refurbished, and painted red-white-and-blue to serve as America's "Freedom Train" to celebrate the bicentennial. The original paint-scheme was orange, red, and black. TheOtherWiki has an article on it [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Pacific_4449 here]].
