There were some old favourites and some surprises in the list of names for the train cars on the city’s 40 Light Rail Transit system.

For one thing, there are no Ottawa Senators hockey players on the list but sainted Montreal Canadiens icon Rocket Richard will ride the rails on a Trillium Line car.

Former governor general Lord Stanley, who donated the Stanley Cup to denote hockey supremacy, will be on a Confederation Line car long before the actual Cup is won by the modern-day Senators.
