THE Land Train in Stirling is looking for a name and operators are looking to enlist the public in a bid to find the perfect title.

Go Forth Stirling, which runs the attraction, has launched its Name the Stirling Land Train competition and children are being asked to come up with suggestions.

It is to help bring the train to life and reflect its connection to Stirling.

A shortlist will later be drawn up and put to a public vote.

The most popular suggestion will be chosen around mid-February.

Prizes are on offer for the contest winner, who will be invited to a relaunch and naming ceremony.

Danielle McRorie-Smith, chair at Go Forth Stirling, said: “We’re excited to have launched this competition to find the best name for our Land Train which is popular with families across Stirling and beyond.

“We’re keen to have public involvement in deciding a title and are sure entrants will use their imagination to come up with some witty and creative names which would be perfect for the Land Train.

“Perhaps they’ll take some inspiration from the names of Scotland’s ice gritters who include Sir Andy Flurry, Luke Snowalker and Grittie McVittie!

“Our one stipulation is that the name should have some kind of link to Scotland or Stirling which should help youngsters come up with something that really suits our fantastic train.”

Prizes include certificates and a family trip on the train for all those who are shortlisted.

The winner will enjoy a family day out in Stirling, including lunch and attraction passes.

Entries can be made by completing a nomination form which can be picked up on board the Land Train, in the Stirling Arcade or click here.
