Train Service Changes Its Name To 'Trainy McTrainface' In Light Of Boaty McBoatface

In a solid moment of British banter good enough to make Alan Partridge fist-pump, a train service renamed themselves 'Trainy McTrainface' earlier today.

The temporary change was made by one of South West Trains guards who was up for getting some laughs from passengers on the Portsmouth to Waterloo line.

One happy customer was 17-year-old Matthew Fifield, who said the name change cheered him up when he caught the train at Haslemere, at around 8.40am.

He told the Standard: "My trains were all delayed today so it brightened my morning to see it."

It comes after news of a £200 million ship could be potentially named Boaty McBoatface after an online poll was run to find a name for it.

Thousands of people have been chiming in with their options to the #NameOurShip campaign, which was launched on Thursday 17 March.

As it stands, RRS Boaty McBoatface is currently holding the top stop.

Let's make this happen.
