Electra The Electric Train

Electra the Electric Engine is a fictional character from the rock musical Starlight Express.

Electra is the newest train to enter the yard and, therefore, Control's newest toy. He comes with his own line of components that are loyal to him. He's rich, self-centered and sexy. His eyes are set on Pearl and they race in the heats until she chooses Greaseball. Electra then takes Dinah for the uphill Final after Greaseball dumps her. Dissatisfied with his performance, Dinah disconnects herself from him and he calls for CB to race with him for the re-run Final. In the end, he crashes along with Greaseball and CB.

Famous quotes containing the words electra, electric and/or train:

    We are sheep in a herd of sheep,
    but Clytemnestra, Electra and Death
    are burnt like star-names in the sky.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It requires a surgical operation to get a joke well into a Scotch understanding. The only idea of wit, or rather that inferior variety of the electric talent which prevails occasionally in the North, and which, under the name of “Wut,” is so infinitely distressing to people of good taste, is laughing immoderately at stated intervals.
    Sydney Smith (1771–1845)

    My heart is warm with the friends I make,
    And better friends I’ll not be knowing,
    Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,
    No matter where it’s going.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
