Week 15 – Challenge 4 – Insane

Challenge page : http://www.ancientsocieties.com/insane/

The challenge text says Station. This name was not displayed originally, it appeared later as a hint I presume.

So there are letters and a zero on the truck door :

convey

XGJZWEXFPZYPQ
QNXFJQLJXGC0X
HJZRPZXAQRHXZ
TYMYXQEZRZTTK

The picture name is convey.jpg. So these letters are probably linked to conveying something or a way to convey

Lets say, 0 is a separator, so we have these letters :

XGJZWEXFPZYPQQNXFJQLJXGC
XHJZRPZXAQRHXZTYMYXQEZRZTTK

The second line has 3 more letters, lets make groups of 3 letters…

XGJ ZWE XFP ZYP QQN XFJ QLJ XGC
XHJ ZRP ZXA QRH XZT YMY XQE ZRZ TTK

This is absolutely not familiar to me but searching a group of letters and station (the hint word), sent me to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_IATA-indexed_railway_stations

And trains are a good way to convey something…

We find for the first group, these stations :

XGJ: Cobourg railway station, Canada
ZWE: Antwerpen-Centraal railway station, Antwerp, Belgium
XFP: Malmö Central Station, Sweden
ZYP: Pennsylvania Station, New York City, New York, United States
QQN: Birmingham New Street railway station, Birmingham, UK
XFJ: Eskilstuna Central station, Eskilstuna, Sweden
QLJ: Lucerne railway station, Lucerne, Switzerland
XGC: Lund Central Station, Sweden

And for the second group, these ones :
XHJ: Aachen Hauptbahnhof, Aachen, Germany
ZRP: Pennsylvania Station, Newark, New Jersey, United States
ZXA: Aberdeen railway station, Scotland
QRH: Rotterdam Centraal railway station, Netherlands
XZT: Trondheim Central Station, Norway
YMY: Montreal Central Station, Quebec, Canada (no longer an airport)
XQE: Ebbsfleet International railway station, Ebbsfleet Valley, UK (Eurostar)
ZRZ: New Carrollton (WMATA station), New Carrollton, Maryland, United States
TTK: Tottenham Hale station, London, United Kingdom (no airport)

The first letter of each station gives us for the first group : CAMPBELL
and for the second group : APARTMENT

Here is some information about the Campbell Apartment : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campbell_Apartment, it’s a bar ! I like bars 🙂
