The Internet recently voted on the name of a U.K. polar research boat, ultimately choosing the name “Boaty McBoatface” as the official title. It made headlines over recent days and has apparently influenced the name of other transit options. According to Daily Mail, one train conductor recently changed the name of his train in a similar fashion.
One train pulling into London’s Waterloo station recently carried the name “Trainy McTrainface,” a brilliant title picked by the conductor, no doubt in reference to Boaty McBoatface. Daily Mail caught some of the reactions on Twitter, where tired commuters had their frowns turned upside-down as the train’s name scrolled across the digital ticker.
