    Has anybody else noticed DTG have gone from giving routes interesting names like CSX Heavy Haul and Rapit Transit to just the name of the routes?

    Yeah, and I definitely prefer it this way. Less confusion about what you're getting, less over-the-top marketing, and to be honest those names always sounded a bit cheesy to me.

    Rapid Transit was the last route to get a name like that.

    I’m happy we get just the name of the route, there’s no need to think of a “interesting name” when the actual name will suffice.

    I prefer them to just name the section of route they built, rather than giving it a name like Great Western Express.

    Straight to the point.
