Don't you need to sell shares in order to afford to float your new company?

Yeah, I'll sell them on a subsequent stock action.

Sell one Y&N (105->100)
Buy two ECR at 62 each. This company now floats and buys 3 stations.

I was going to edit the sheet to fix that, but I figure you're probably going to buy the other share next turn.

To confirm, if I merge two companies and have an odd number of total shares in them, I'd have the option to "buy up" the remaining half-share into another complete share, right? That's what I'm taking away from reading the rules but it feels like it's worded kind of obtusely.

Mr. Squishy
Mar 22, 2010

A country where you can always get richer.

You're right, that bit of the rulebook is an intimidating mess. But you're generally correct, barring a few edge cases. You discard half your shares to the bank (rounded down) and flip the odd share into an option, or half a share, which you then either buy up the other half or sell it to the bank. This either costs or earns you half the current market rate.

I will then buy the 5th EUC, floating it.

Unless someone sells something on my next turn I will buy ENR from the IPO and then pass out the round.

I believe this is an impermissible route in that you can run to, but not through, a red off-board area like London. If you were relying on the connection through London to reach Colchester I don't think you could place that token either. (I don't know what the map looked like, it might have been possible to trace a route the long way around)

section 7.4 posted:

If a route visits a red off-board hex or a port, it must terminate there.


Edit: Never mind, I thought you were running from Newmarket-London-Harwich port. I still think NGC can't do that, but for a different reason: at least one train run in every company's turn has to hit their home station, so I don't think NGC would have been able to run Newmarket-London-Harwich with just 2 2Fs. (I assume it was going London-Colchester-Harwich port via the token in Colchester.)

section 7.8 posted:

At least one run for a company must include the town occupied by the company’s home station marker.
