Within the realm of color, the shadows often assume responsibility for the awkward shine of yellow.

I'm probably not the only one with white trains instead of the purple ones, right?

Everyone (who bought the game) should have white trains...

Side note:

... the reason being that the producer of these trains tokens does not sell purple ones (I checked at https://www.spielematerial.de during Spiel 2016, and they have the exact same shapes, in the exact same colours included in the game).

Too bad they didn't go for white shares then. :/

OK, I can't have been the only one humming "Purple (T)rain, Purple (T)rain..." after seeing this thread title, right? Right?

Ok, does any of you know if miniature ink will work on these wooden trains? I mean, not really a big fan of buying a whole spray can of purple ink just to paint these two pieces.

Any ideas?

If you mean acrylic paint, I'm sure it will. That's my plan for when my copy arrives.

I painted the white trains with Army Painter royal purple and they ended up looking great.
