I think you're wrong on both those stock movements: CSX starts at $90, moves down six slots for the three loans to $66, a payout of $90 moves it up two to $74. UP starts at $86, a payout of $160 moves it up three to $100.

Correct on both counts. I misjudged.

Toronto-Detroit-Colombus is $100 to my eyes, so you earn $250 from all trains. Half-pay leaves you short $5.
e:Also the Jacksonville-Florida oroborous is finally complete.

Ah, I'd somehow spaced and thought I was going all the way to NYC on that one. Hm, lemme edit real fast. (And yeah how didn't i realize that jacksonville thing earlier)

e: can't repay in that case, shoulda paid a little less for that train

That was my guess as to your solution. It's also essentially what I'm going to do now. As a guy who's shorting a company w/ 4 loans, I'm quite happy to see a high interest rate.

I'll also pass that round.
Since it's a weird bitty rule, I'll say it again: at the end of the last OR, all remaining 3Ts were exported. This leaves two 3+Ts and then the 4Ts that will rust all our 2Ts. This is the last export exception, after here it's the top one from the supply at the end of every OR. Designer hated having to buy 3s, I guess.
Lecher is PD, he goes first.

Sell 3 shares of Western Pacific
Presidency of WP transfers from Lecher to Squishy
Short 1 share of WP, (+48)
Buy 1 share of GNR from Market (-157)


According to the rules a company cannot be bought or sold (or shorted) when it's in the acquisition spaces, so I guess there can't be any further shorting of WP (or for that matter buying the shares in the market) during this stock round.

Selling doesn't cause a company's stock to fall, it falls at the end of the Stock round per share in the market.

Yet another 1817/USA-difference I missed. Cool, a few extra bucks for the short sale then, I'll fix my turn.

Edit: Also, sorry to dump a company on you, it was just a perfect opportunity to do so and I'm told that 17/USA are all about the financial shenanigans anyway.

I believe you just personally go bankrupt, your stuff gets liquidated, and the game continues. But I thought when I looked at the numbers he could probably survive it (especially since it wonít hit until the very end of the OR), it just wasnít going to be pleasant.
