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!

  • Bellevue and Great Western (your town name)
  • The Mad River & Nickel Plate Road Museum is in Bellevue
  • Iron Horse (taken)
  • [city name here] Terminal Railway, used for shuttling cargo within a city
  • [city name here] and Eastern/Western/Southern/Northern Rwy.
  • Great [compass point] and [area] Railroad
  • Pennsylvania Brewery "The standard of the world" (takeoff on PRR motto)
  • Search for model train layouts. They have inventive, even poetic names.
  • There was ashortline in New York state that served many vineyards. It was nicknamed "The Champagne Route"
  • Golden Spike It is a Hefeweizen by Unita brewery but it is not a brewery name
Whether beer is made in waders or in a toilet tank, as long as it is fun and the brewer likes how it tastes, who cares how it is brewed?

The Old 97 (from the song "wreck of old 97"), or maybe a train-hopper theme? Hobo's perhaps?
