Sorry for my terrible response time.

Nickel Plate built to Pittsburgh, then ran to Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh for 200 net and paid a dividend.

Binkman's PRR in next.

We are probably 75-90% through the game, which might add to the confusion.

It's really more of an economic game, the train theme is important, but it's really secondary.

It's an 18XX game with training wheels. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/18XX
