At our tent at the 150th Anniversary Celebration on Friday August 12, 2022 starting at 3PM we will have our freight train game. Use it to develop your skills as a railroad engineer.
“A train arrives on the main line with full freight cars to be delivered to some combination of eight businesses on four sidings. The engine must pick up any empty freight cars on the sidings to prepare to move them to the next destination, and deliver the full freight cars to the proper business as indicated by color near the tracks in as few moves as possible.”
To play the game, place some freight cars on the main line with an engine to make a train, place a couple empty freight cars at the colored business locations. Use the engine to move the cars to the appropriate business, and gather the empty cars at the businesses into a train ready to move them to the next destination down the line in as few moves as possible.
