How to use
There may be a brief text description of the game before the following
tables. The first table gives some detail about the game production while
the second gives details about the game and the way it is played. The
Trainspotting link above will provide more details if required.
- Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any questions about the rules
of the game, then please check this section to see if it has been asked
before. If it does not help you, then please email and we will try to
answer, the FAQ will then be updated to include the new information.
- This is a reference section that I hope will help players when they do
not have the game at hand and want to discuss some aspect of the game (such
as the cost and number of trains or the start base of a particular
Corporation). There is a lot of information packed away in these tables.
- This may include photographs of the game and components, if it is a
gamekit it may include drawings as well. The link will bring you to another
menu where you can select which picture you wish to view, file size will be
noted against each link so you can have an idea how long it will take to
- I hope to provide reviews on all aspects of the game (from gameplay to
production issues). If anyone wished to contribute to this section then
please email with an article, short or long, positive or negative views
- Primarily for gamekits, this will give the contact address plus any
other information know about the current cost and status of the game. If
the game has been commercially produced, it will state if it is still
possible to obtain in Hobby Shops, if know the print run will be given.
- This can contain a variety of articles, strategy, variations, opening
moves, anything that cannot be fitted in the above sections. Again, I will
welcome any contributions in the area.
