TrainyMcTrainFace – Naming a Swedish train

The naming of transport vehicles has gone too far

An express train running between two major Swedish cities will be named TrainyMcTrainface, after the railway company opened up the name to a public vote.

MTR Express, with Swedish newspaper Metro, opened up a poll to name four new trains running between the capital Stockholm and Gothenburg on the country’s west coast.

TrainyMcTrainface, which received 49 per cent of the vote, was the most popular name.
