The game train was a multi-car vehical housing full size video games for attendees to play. The train was parked alongside a chain link fence at the 2019 Burning Man Decompression Party. The smile on the front of the train made it appear friendly.

Figures from video games decorated the front cab of the game train. One of them said, "@!#?@!."

Two more video game characters decorated the overhang above the front cab. An angry gorilla was about to hurl a barrel at a much smaller man.

The second car had several signs painted on it. They were: "High Score," "Press Start." and "Winner." Notice that even the tire had been painted yellow to complete the decoration.
