In Freight Train, each player runs their own freight yard and several trains. Using these and a shared main yard, players take eleven different types of freight cars and compete to form the longest trains. The game lasts for three "days", but when the yard foreman calls it quits, that day is over. As each day wears on, tension mounts as players scheme to ensure that their trains will be the longest. The locomotives are waiting. Are you ready to roll?
