After downing your favorite cup of chai, you look at the bag and wonder, “Big Train. That’s an odd name for my vanilla chai. Big Train.” After doing the same thing, I decided to do a little research for the question, “Why the name Big Train?”
Here is an excerpt from Big Train's old website that clearly defines why the name “Big Train”:
The Legend of Big Train
Trains have always symbolized certain romanticism and adventure in America. They provided our first coast-to-coast means of comfortable and safe travel, delivering products, goods and passengers across thousands of miles of wilderness eventually helping to tame wilderness into metropolis. From hopping freight cars and riding the rails to today’s elegant Amtrak coaches that provide all the comforts of home, trains helped to define our nation. Even with today’s fast, sleek jets capable of crossing the country in minutes, trains still represent the best way to travel if you want to see the country.
We wanted a name that represented something that everyone could identify with; a name that stood for something special. Our love of trains and what they symbolize led us to our name. Big Train is that name.
And, Big Train is right on track delivering the big taste and flavor you want and expect. The kind that lingers on your taste buds, teasing, caressing, whispering for more. It goes down so smoothly that when you’ve finished, it will take all your will power to not have a second. But, for the weak willed, it’s all right.
