As for the game. Well when you play as many as we have been lately it gets hard to keep the straight.

You are Active in what??? 12 TAG games? I am in 10 and watch the other 2 at times.

In reference to the UP 8 axle motor;

Union Pacific Railroad DDA40X 'Centennial' diesel locomotive #6938. The Centennials were the largest diesel-electric locomotives ever built, all for Union Pacific. Of the 47 DDA40Xs built, 12 survive, with #6936 (based in Cheyenne, Wyoming) still operational.

Good to know that there is still one in service. Since there are only 12 left, it looks like a steam engine is y'alls' best bet. If nothing is found today, starting tomorrow any locomotive will do, providing it is not a model. I don't want to hold the game up.

The same CSX line runs past my neighborhood. There is a crossing @1mile down the road. hear them everyday and see them almost as much. 4 and 6 axle are the normal. Now I have seen some service/repair equipment that have more but I wouldn't call them a locomotive.

It will get TAGGED. The steam engine I grabbed in Sanford for the NC ABC game, had 8 or more axles if anyone wants to grab that one.

The Museum of the American Rail Road, currently in Dallas and in the process of moving to Frisco, TX, has a centennial,in it's permanent collection. I don't know where it is at the moment, either Dallas or Frisco, or somewhere else? I just need the time to go looking for it.

Anyone in the DFW area????

It's been 9 days we have been stuck on this tag. Pick something else Mr D. In Winter, some easier tags will keep the game moving faster.

No tracks in my area. And I haven't had the time for a longer ride lately.

I can pick something else but can't actually get a pic as I am sick. How about a minor league baseball park? I thought about making that the tag item the other day. So get a minor league baseball park.

That's no better than the 8 axle locomotive. Try picking something that isn't limited by specific locations. You know, a common object or type of place. Perhaps something that people that don't live in major cities can still grab.

If I had time, I'd ride to Vegas and get either of those tags there, but I don't have most of a day to kill during the week just to go score a tag or two.
