Most of these sound more like your opinions of each line than nicknames. And besides you're very late to the party since these lines have nicknames already

You're not the first to come up with the idea, but there's already "nicknames" for said lines

I personally do not know them, but they're used over the radios and all that

Yeah, I didn't understand this.

 

I'd rather call it the (E) than the Excellent. Saves time.

Assumedly, these would be based off the phonetic alphabet, which would run as.

 

Alpha

Bravo

Charlie

Delta

Echo

Foxtrot

Golf

Juliet

Lima

Mike

November

Quebec

Romeo

Sierra

Whiskey

Zulu

 

But I'm sure there are some differences.

I just like the regular single letters, its easier to tell at a glance what someones talking about

 

I think the nicknames are used to refer to the train's call letters (train's identity by interval, route, and origin-destination. For Example: 13:26 (Q) Quincy Ditmars-Stillwell)

I think he just put together random words that match each letter. They don't sound creative at all. I'm not a big fan of making up names for each line but I mean (C) - can't, (D) - dont... really?
