I like "blinging" my games and GWT's discs are begging for stickers. I was thinking of putting a train station (which corresponds to each player color) on each disc.

Does anyone know a good image to use for a train station?

What do people think? Should another image be put on the disc instead?

This is a great idea - I really love the dwarf stickers for Caverna - but I'm not sure train stations is the way to go. Is there something that speaks more to the trail? Maybe a different breed of horse for each colour, or cowboy/girl faces, or four different images of a cowboy on a horse, maybe in silhouette, or four sunsets over the trail (desert, forest, river, plain w/rock outcroppings) or something else?

These ideas are even better! I was thinking train stations because that's where the discs end up. Yet, having different cows or cowboys/girls can distinguish each player other than color.

Great idea. It's like each disc is a representative of your ranch present at the station. The stickers could be people from your ranch or they could be the "brand" symbol for your ranch.

Note that there are two different places your discs can go:
* In cities, as delivered cows
* In train stations, as upgrades
I don't know how important it is to distinguish between them

Well, every disc has two sides, so...

I was thinking like DrumPhil - different "Brands" for each ranch.
Flying "X"
Rocking "Y"
Lazy "Z"
etc. You could use any letter with a design. Or instead of letters it could be symbols like squares, circles, triangles, "X", etc.

This might be the best way to go because the discs are fairly small.
