Train de plaisirs?
Add the madon(n)e des sleepings in, and you have your next train blogging, Dodo!
No?
OK, we will satisfy ourself with a story of the train in the coal mines through the ages. The black&white pictures will be nice too.

But think about it again. The train de plaisirs...

madon(n)e des sleepings

You shamed me, I had to look it up, that's a film and a book I never heard about! Have you seen/read it?

Actually there are 2 books, madone and madonne.
I believe i read the one with "madonne". But I am not so sure anymore. The title was known to me anyway not through the books or the film, but I came across it in some newspapers or other readings. I have the feelings it is popular by "witty" journalists and  humorists, I'm quite sure to have seen it recycled more than once in the "canard enchaine" or San antonio.
It seems to be catchy.
