"Oddly it contained no references to actual trainspotting"

The book is in fact named after the chapter in which two of the characters (Renton and Begbie) end up at Leith Central station, and meet Begbie's dad who jokes about them 'trainspotting' there. It's basically a metaphor for watching as your life passes you by, I think.
