In Freight Train each player must run his own freight yard and put together the longest freight trains possible. All players use the same main freight yard which always has cars available although not every type of car is always available. Players must switch cars from the main freight yard directly to their trains or into their own freight yards. The game lasts three days but each day is comprised of a different number of turns. Late in each day the tension mounts as players try to insure their trains will be one of the two longest. The locomotives are waiting to roll. Are you ready?

Using these and a shared main yard, players take 11 different types of freight cars and compete to form the longest trains. The game lasts for 3 days, but when the yard foremen call 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. It contains 35 locomotive cards, 7 cabooses, 15 bumper cards, end-of-day card, and wooden turn engine. It can be used from 2 to 5 players and children above 8 years.
