When you were a kid, did you spend hours dreaming what it would be like to name a commuter railway train? Okay, me neither, but it’s still a cool idea. Fort Worth Weekly and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority are teaming up for a contest called “The Name Event.” Pick a great name for the newest commuter train – which will run from southwest Fort Worth to Grapevine and DFW Airport – and you could win two American Airlines round-trip tickets, gift cards to Sundance Square businesses, and other stuff. Deadline is midnight Feb 17. Go here to vote.
By the way – if you were thinking of picking “Priscilla Queen of the T” or “The Little Engine That Could Kick Ass” or “Choo Choo Von Whistlestop,” I’m calling dibs now.
