Added DiffLines:

* TimothyZahn's ''QuadrailSeries'' has what amounts to an interplanetary metro system, with light-years-long tunnels that snake around the galaxy and connect many interplanetary systems together. It gets turned on its head in one of the later books: [[spoiler:it turns out that the trains and the tunnels are a ruse, and the real power is in the thread in the middle of tunnel itself - which will propel at faster-than-light speeds *anything* that approaches it. Since the galaxy is filled with warlike species who'd like nothing more than to wage intergalactic war, the illusion of the tunnels and train cars as being vital components of the system enables the Spiders to keep peace. It gets much harder to attach any coolness to the whole thing after that.]]

* Solar Monorail Chirmirajen, from ''{{Exalted}}'', 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). The writers have described it as "ThomasTheTankEngine, by way of {{Gamera}}."
