Express trains (also sometimes referred to as "fast trains") are a form of rail service. Express trains make only a small amount of stops, instead of stopping at every single station. In many cases, trains often run express where there is overlapping local train service available, and run local at the tail ends of the line, where there is no supplemental local service. During overnight hours, or other times where it is practical, express trains become local, but still running to where an express train would terminate at.
