0 origins of the reference train

excerpted from the depths of recentish lad lit...
"And number ten in the Top Ten Reasons to Dump Tamara- You know what this one's gotta be..."
"Can't ride the Reference Train," Tad said.
"Can't ..... ride......Train," I wrote, underlined three times.
Riding the Reference Train was a term of Tad's invention. It meant that if he started in on a riff, you had to follow, lead, or get out of the way.
(Cad, pg. 51)
