Does anyone know why Hitler's special train (Sonderzug) was called Amerika?

Hello!

Damn I can´t find the article but I remember that it was named after Amerika a village in Northern France. Hitler had some affiliation with this town I think it had to do with WWI but with this I am not sure. But I am sure that it is named after the village in France.
