Fans hop aboard exclusive train to Comic-Con

Nick Friedland of San Francisco waits for the departure of the Wikia Fan Express train to Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, at Union Station in Los Angeles. A lucky fellowship of “Lord of the Rings” fans are forgoing the preferred method of Middle-earth transportation - that’d be horseback - to journey to Comic-Con in a private train car that’s been transformed into the Wikia Fan Express. The fan-centric social networking site and “Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor” publisher Warner Bros. Interactive have picked 40 fans to ride the one-of-a-kind carriage from La La Land to San Diego for the four-day pop-culture celebration, which kicks off Thursday, July 24, 2014, at the San Diego Convention Center.
