Grand Trunk Railway inspired the name of a critically trashed but popular 1970s rock band, Grand Funk Railroad.  Grand Funk Railroad was a play on words of the Grand Trunk Railroad, a railroad line that ran through the band's home town of Flint, Michigan.  Below is the railroad inspired band playing a railroad inspired cover of the Little Eva hit The Locomotion.  Pardon the shirtless singer.
