Swedish Train to be Named Trainy McTrainface

They knew what they were getting into when they posted an online poll to name a train. And the Swedish rail line MTR Express is ready to go with it. And it's proper to give props to online poll contributors after the British government backed out of naming a research ship Boaty McBoatface.

"(This is) news that will be received with joy by many, not just in Sweden," MTR wrote in a statement.

The train will run between the Swedish capital Stockholm and Gothenburg, the country's second-biggest city.

Trainy McTrainface won 49 percent of the vote, coming in ahead of Hakan, Miriam and Poseidon. -via reddit
