The history of these branded cigarettes began in 1893. The trademark name had then firstly appeared in the mind of Sir Albert Levy, a British tobacco trader, when he visited New York. While travelling by the Empire State Express train, he was astounded with its speed in the track from New York City till Buffalo. No other train could reach the same speed of 160 km/h at that time.

The brand name consisted of the words State Express and numerals (three numbers, ranging from 111 to 999) 555, which were recorded under the British Registration No. 290529 in February, 1907.
Numerals were used for identification of various trademarks and specified different tobacco blends. For example, the numeral 444 identified a Macedonian leaf, 777 was a description of Turkish tobacco blend.
