OR 3.2! Note that even though we're now in phase D, this will still be the last OR of this set as it was started in Phase C.





ENR operates
Upgrades Great Yarmouth (H5)
Tokens Beccles (G8)
Runs 2/3E Cromer Port-Norwhich, skipping Norwhich for 110
Runs 3E Norwhich-Great Yarmouth port for 210
Pays out 320 to shareholders, stock triple bumps from 95 to 128

Upgrades Ipswich (F11) and token it.
Runs 3F: Great Yarmouth Port to F5 (100+30+2*30 = 190)
Runs 2/3E: G8 down to F11 and up to E8 (60+30 = 90)
Runs 2/3E: F11 down to Port of Felixstowe (20+100 = 120)
Runs 3E: H5 across to C8 (50+60+50 = 160)
Total of 560 payout. Stock goes up 4x, 90>>>>134

Edit: forgot to mention that I redeemed a company share

I noticed when I increase the company shares, it automatically counted with the dividend being paid twice, instead of the once since I only had 1 share at the time of the payout. Not sure how to really hand company shares so for now, I removed a market share and will add the company share in the next tab (this is represented by the IPO share temporarily).
Let me know if there is a more elegant way to handle this situation.

We have a little bit of a problem in that Y&N is over the train limit (4 vs 3) and shouldn't have even been able to buy a train last OR (when the limit was also 3). I guess the easiest thing to do would be to force it to discard a train to the market? I dunno. Nope, no problem except me being a dumbass and forgetting that train limit is per type not overall.

It's the limit per type? So it has 3 E trains and 1F trains and is therefore under the cap?

I had drawn some diagrams explaining why this was an in illegal route, but after pathing out legal ones I figured out you'd just typo'd G8 here.

Oops sorry. I was playing with different routes and forgot to change that one when I ran the express train in its place. Did I at least find the highest payout routes from what you pathed out?

I was looking for legality not optimisation, but glancing at it now that first 2/3E doesn't need to go up to E8 but could go down to E12 for 30 more.

Isn't E12 blocked for Y&N?

You can run to but not through full-up stations. Another common rule I didn't stress enough, sorry about that. So E12 is not blocked but D13 is.

Crap, that's right. This game is a hornet's nest of rules and edge cases I've not encountered in other games.

In that case I'll run WNR's F2+F3 voltron'd into an F5 from Ely C8 to Port of Wells. It's 4 hexes in between but 3 as the crow flies so it's 50+90+(30*3)=230. I'll keep the track lay though because eh screw it.

Ah good to know. I'll take it as a lesson learned. Is that typical in 18xx or another part of the '62 chrome?

Mr. Squishy

That's no good either. I believe what you're doing is entering E6 from the north and leaving on the southwest, which you can't do as there is no junction there. One of the weirdnesses of '62 is the only junctions are in cities. So on E6, north goes south, southwest goes northeast and no tile upgrades can change that. Looking at it, your best route would be to change the tile lay to upgrading Norwhich and then running from Port of Wells to Great Yarmouth for 230. That's the greatest immediate payout I can see.

In my experience it's ubiquitous. Basically every rulebook stresses it too so I really should have thought.

For some reason the board had been rolled back until before WNR ran. CD, you ran straight down F7 and 9, I'm not sure which exact upgrade you used on C6. Also, CD jumped the gun a bit and so EUR has paid out, but I think is still owed a track upgrade?
