Can anyone tell me the names of the 2 trains that collided on the Orient Express at WoF in '87?

Frank and Marie.
Seriously, I had no idea that Orient Express had names for the trains. I thought that was a GASM (SFGAdv) thing.

Is that what you meant?

Well, the reason I ask is that I'm in a trivia contest and have been researching one question in particular that has me stumped. The question is:
Back in the 1980's Orient Express was dealt an unlucky blow and derailed by a bluffing brat. Tell us the names of the two dey players and what the heck we're talking about.
I've learned that Orient Express was a coaster at WoF and that two trains collided in 1987 and assumed this is what they're talking about. As for the two key players I thought perhaps they would be the train names.
Anyone know who the "two key players" might be?

Not to burst your buble, but the Orient Express is one of the most famous name trains in history. Its route ran through parts of Europe and into Asia, and was the famous setting of Agatha Christies murder whodunnit "Murder on the Orient Express". (It is not to my knowledge that she ever road roller coasters, not to mention frequented American amusement parks.)
This is where you should probly begin to search for answers, not with the roller coaster name-sake.

Oh, I didn't mention that the contest questions are relative only to the Western U.S.

Well considering that Kansas City is a long way from "THE WEST" maybe you should consider the Orient Express that runs at SFMM? OH WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!!!!111!!! (insert rolling eyes here)
