So you have a Cool Train, but you want to name it something. How about somehing with "Express" on it?

Writers seem to add that word to the names of trains a lot. Maybe it's cool, Maybe i's more train-like.

Note that in Real Life the term "Express" is used to denote trains that do not stop at every station on it's route. It can also mean Point of No Return.
