Kind of like 1830 Railroads & Robber Barons? Where's Mark Shot?

Yes and no. It's actually the same geographic area and has a lot of the same RR companies. In both you're trying to accrue the highest net worth, but the means of doing so are a lot different.

Actually, I think you are.

I think I may have ran out of steam. :coolsmiley:

Mark was, last we talked, living in Taiwan. I hope all is going well for him there.

B&M somehow continues to increase profits, not that it matters in any way.

C&O is next.

C&O ran just enough ti bump up its profits, paid out measly dividends to bump up its share price. Time for Mike to run the Illinois central.

PRR dumped a 2-train, bought the first 5 train, and built into New York City.

Ran:
Chicago $90
Ft. Wayne $40
Detroit $80
Cleveland $60
Wheeling $50
Pittsburgh $70
Harrisburg $20
Philly $50
Baltimore $40
New York $70
Coal $40
Maintenance -$150

Net $460

Dividends of $368 for me, $92 for Rex.

Rex is up next to run the NH and then NYC.

Assuming my math is correct, the present net worth scoreboard looks like this:

James $1595
Mike $1545
l'amour $1254
Me $1091
Rex $763

I think those numbers are still a bit close to be calling out winners, now that serious money is being generated.

Having said that, I am sure I will end up in the bottom 2.

NH ran the same Boston/NY route and earned $70.

NYC ran:
Chicago (90) +
Detroit (80) +
Pittsburgh (70) +
NY (70) +
Cleveland (60) +
Indy (50) +
Wheeling (50) +
Buffalo (50)
---------------
= $520

less $100 maintenance = $420

It withheld the dividend.
