Default railroad inspired brewery names?

Starting brewing in Bellevue Ohio (wiki it) its been months and no name had come to mind our town is known for the railroad and I have an interview as a conductor on the csx railroad this week so I was thinking maybe a train theme brewery name to represent the town. Any ideas?

Steel Rails Brewery, Bellevue Express Brewing, Roundhouse Brewery, Steam Whistle Brewing, Narrow Gauge Brewing, Third Rail Brewing (more a subway thing!), Bellevue Station Brewing, Two Tracks Brewing, Cannonball (train from Petticoat Junction show in 60's! As in the Hooterville Cannonball) Brewing.

There's a few for you!

Caboose Brewery. Singing Rails Brewery. Other Side of the Tracks. Nickel Plate Road Brewery. Nickel Plate 779 (you could develop a cool logo with a stylized steam engine as a brew kettle).
