Lists of named passenger trains

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the history of rail transport, dating back to the 19th century, there have been hundreds of named passenger trains. Lists of these have been organised into geographical regions.

Trains with numeric names are spelled out. For example, the 20th Century Limited is listed under "Twentieth Century Limited".

Named trains are sometimes identified through a train headboard, drumhead, lettering on the locomotive or passenger cars,[1] or a combination of these methods.
