The Victorian Railways have a habit of naming locos, currently all the "N" Class locos are named after provincial Victorian cities/towns.

There are other locos that have been named as well, R707 (a Hudson/Baltic 4-6-4) is named "City of Melbourne". All the "S" Class locos also had names (Matthew Flinders, Sir Edmund Henty etc.). There was even an "E" Class shunter that was named "Dynon Donk" which worked the Dynon Freight Yard.
