X2GoHackTrain 2012 started out as a plan for a company-sponsored BBQ for the X2Go core developers. During the initial planning stages, it turned out that Alex (X2Go Co-Founder) would not be able to attend during summer due to his personal commitments, and by the time he would be able to attend, temperatures would be too low for an enjoyable BBQ.
So, X2GoHackTrain to the rescue: As the owner of the company that wanted to sponsor the BBQ is also a member of a volunteer organization that maintains a heritage Diesel railbus, the decision was made to gather inside the train, have lunch together at a railway station diner along the way, and visit a car museum.
Participants in 2012 were: Heinz-M. Graesing (X2Go Co-Founder), Alex (X2Go Co-Founder), Mihai (X2Go Mac/Win Co-Developer until Mike#2 took over), Stefan (owner of BAUR-ITCS UG and sponsor of the event)
