You may need to hunt up Seth Bramson for such a question on the FEC, however the Celestial Railroad or Jupiter & Lake Worth did run to Jupiter, but I have no idea how ancient Jupiter and modern Jupiter align up these days. Mars itself was just a lonely flag stop 6 miles south of Jupiter and was used for letting off passengers for hunting or swimming on the nearby beach. Sounds like somebody with FEC had a sense of either history or humor when they named it the Mars team track.
