Railroad companies often use words and pictures to tell people whose railroad their locomotives belong to. But how do they choose their names? How would you decide what to call your railroad?
It's your railroad. Call it what you like.
Here are some line drawings of steam, diesel and electric locomotives. Print the ones you like and then put the name of your railroad on them. Pick some colors to help identify your railroad. Maybe all your locomotives will be green with red roofs on their cabs. Maybe you will choose blue and add some yellow safety stripes. Maybe they will all have different colors. Do whatever you like and have fun!
