In what season and country did teams drive their cars up on a train and ride the train to their next destination? I've never seen a "train ferry" and remember how cool it was but I don't know when and where it was.

I knew Reichen he was first eliminated or tied for first becuase they eliminate a guy/girl first but he was one of the first to get booted, he was on it with Nikki Mcibbon, Omorosa, Jenna and Ethan, and Ryan from the Bachelorette, Ryan won.


I didnt know Brit was on and won, i read about that on wikipedia.
