I'll pass for the moment, too. (no log) Chris should be up, I think.

Well, I could make either the B&O or CPR (edit: Assuming Binkman spends his $$ on another CPR share) float.. does no one want to woo me?  I guess others could help the CPR float as well.. but you know.. I would not mind being wooed.

Well, I don't do wooing too well. But logically, you're already pot committed to the B&O. I can't float it so you would certainly be severely punishing me at a small detriment to yourself. If you think that's reasonable play, then you should float the CPR. I suspect the CPR will be floated regardless of your move since there is ample capital on the board to do so, but you are the only one that can float the B&O.

You are wooing me with logic!  Hrm.

Edit:  Actually, you might not be that bad off if the the B&O does not float.  You get the highest private payout in the game until the B&O gets a train.

With an acronym like CPR, how can you help but breath life into this railroad?

Donnon-floated company shares devalue for not operating?

Nope.  The company does not even exist until it floats, so it does not go in the OR, so the stock does not move.

Yeah, with the B&O private exiting the game after the B&O major operates, it's not necessarily a bad deal to not float the B&O immediately. It's payout is more than any other private and will far exceed the return on any share early on. The problem is that you have ~$200 in capital sitting idle not paying dividends or appreciating in value.
