Here I am trying to find the rationality of the quiz type 'Guess the Train/ Station/ Location'. As you are aware that sometimes such quizzes are posted with the train/ station name hidden and members are asked to tell the name of the Train/ Station/ Location. Do you like these kind of quizzes?
Yes. they are fun0%0
Yes. they reflect a true and knowledgable railfan28%7
No. they are impractical and almost impossible to guess36%9
No. they are non-sensical and don't add any value to the site32%8
I have some suggestion for their improvement (Please comment)0%0
Can't say. I don't care about quizzes4%1

Yes, but IMO they are impractical. The way the pictures are posted, the train or the station can be any one of the 8000 trains or 7200 stations. 99% cases only the local people of that station can recognize it. Hence I feel that proper clues should be provided.

If quiz is interesting then we like it
But most of Quizess are based on random pics.. which is impossible to guess.

Quizes are always fun for me.If 4 or 5 options are given then it will be more fun to answer.
