Express Service
The red trains are local, the blue trains are express

Express trains (also sometimes referred to as fast trains, though this is a relative term, usually meaning "faster than some other trains on the line in question") are a form of rail service. Express trains make only a small number of stops, instead of stopping locally. In some cases, trains 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 may become local, but still running to where an express train would terminate.[]

Suburban commuter rail networks also provide express services in order to facilitate demand. On the Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink networks, for example, trains making limited stops connect various major areas of Sydney and its surrounds with the city's Central station.[1] Other trains, such as NSW TrainLink's XPT (Express Passenger Train) or Xplorer, only stop where passengers are to board or disembark and require seats to be booked in advance.[2]
