I've just been informed that I have abandoned the contest for this week. HUH? How in the world did I do THAT?

Hi Farmer Curly,
The train engine won't get any points unless there are dispatchable long cars attached. This is a new twist to the contest, so not sure how this part is going to work.

Hi Daisy,
According to the rules you may not move any of the facilities that are entered in the contest.
PLEASE NOTE: Once the facilites are entered into the contest you must NOT move them to storage or to another farm. If you do, you will see a warning message. If you proceed, the faciltiy will be removed from the farm, but you will be terminated from the contest. In order to remain in the contest, the facilities that are part of a Neighborhood Chain must remain on the farm during the whole week of the contest.

Bummer. Thanks for the speedy reply. That means that in all actuality only one facility this week is coins when we were told there would be two of each.

wondering it the same thing is going to happen in the future with our Semi-Trailers, Bee Farms, Fish Farms, Mineral Mines, Open-Pit mines etc... Trains are not facilities.. you cannot refill them once dispatched and they can only be boosted by 1 day by 12 people.. plus you need to have fc carriages attached.. not all people can afford this.

Please wait until we can get word from the developers on this. Technically trains are a facility. You pay coins to dispatch and they "produce" products.

Yes, I'll have to admit I'm disappointed. Two FC and two Coin facilities a week seemed fair, this week not so much.

Yes, trains are a facility that can be dispatched with coins, but cannot produce without FC flat cars. I'll be patient until we know more.

I'm with the rest. The locomotive is bought with coins but does nothing with out the cars that actually produce goods which are farm cash. What happens if you have a train engine that is bought with farm cash and that is the one you have most of your cars on? Because they of course are faster does it count too? Or just the black locomotive since it is the one listed and would be the only one to qualify under "coins"

I'm getting more than one problem with the Standard Freight Locomotive in this week's contest. When I tried to dispatch it using the link from the contest, the game said I already had a SFL dispatched. So I went directly to the farm where it is located and I couldn't unload it until I 'reloaded' Farm Town.
Then I tried to dispatch it from there and it let me dispatch and boost it. But when I clicked ok after boosting it, I got an XL data error and told be to reload FT again.
After doing this, I went in and checked the contest and it says I received zero points for the train.
So will I receive the points when the train 'returns'?
