Blog + Railfest 2012: Guess that train!

Posted on

Win one of four family tickets to Railfest 2012, and up to £50 of loyalty points to get you there.

Just keep reading to find out more about our latest competition …

To celebrate the upcoming Railfest at the National Railway Museum, we’re going to be running a rail photo competition on Twitter. Over April, we’ll be giving away four family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) and four £50 evouchers of loyalty points for Railfest on the 2 June 2012.

Starting 2nd April, we’ll post a picture of a locomotive to Twitter, and you need to guess what it is. The first person to guess correctly wins. However, there’s a catch! We will only post a small section of the whole picture. If you guess correctly, you win the family ticket, and £50 of rail travel. If no one guesses correctly, we’ll post a larger section of the picture the next day, however the prize will have decreased to a family ticket and only £40 of free railway travel.

Each day, the picture will get easier to guess, but the amount of free railway travel the winner receives will decrease by £10 until the 5th day, when we will post the whole picture. We’ll restart again with a new picture the next day.

To enter, you just need to Tweet at us (@redspottedhanky) with the correct answer and the hashtag #Railfest2012. You can guess as many times as your like but you must be over 18 to enter and you can only win once.
