From the subsequent conversation on the list it sounds like the trainName
in https://schema.org/TrainTrip is there to distinguish the name of the
train from the name of the trip. I'm +1 for adding vehicle subtypes and any
associated tweaks, but I think there's also a strong case to progress the
boattrip proposal first since it will bring things up to parity with trains.

Shall we merge the PR and get started with Boat, Helicopter, Train and
other Vehicle subtypes? https://schema.org/Vehicle currently lists
BusOrCoach, Car, Motorcycl, MotorizedBicycle...
