This one here is actually a derivative of a game that was posted on Railroad forums by SSW9662. :D

Here's the rules:
  • You have to find and post a picture of the described locomotive, passenger car, or freight car.
  • The picture must be of a model railroad, not the prototype.
  • The picture has to be yours, not someone else's or one you found on the internet; in other words, it has to be taken by you
  • the winner is the first one to post a picture of the locomotive ( or sometimes it may be a passenger car or a freight car).
  • Once someone posts the winning picture, I will post a new desciption for everyone to find a picture of & so on
Here's the first description: Amtrak Dash 8-32BHW in ''Pepsi Can'' paint scheme
GOOD Luck!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

Doesn't have to be a leader does it?
Nope, so you are our 1st winner!!

Note to all participants: from now on there will be 2 descriptions each time; one picked by me & one picked by the winner. :)

So, here's the next description from me: Great Northern steam engine

And SSW, you get to pick the second description since you won; please post it when ever you have time.

by the way, was that any paticular train route in your picture, SSW?

Congratulations to our 2nd winner, hyrail5!!!!

hyrail5 since you just won, you get to pick the next description (remember, it can be a locomotive, passenger car, or a freight car).

Hyrail5, please let me know your decision on the description, or just post it yourself.

Everyone: remember we still have Great Northern steam engine going, so if you have one, hurry and post it before someone else does!!
