So gentlemen, we meet again.


Assuming nobody complains, M18 would have bought M6s 2 train for a $1 because it's the end of times.

The above allows GWR (plus 100 out of pocket) to buy a 4T. Causing a lot of 2 trains to disappear.
Stock drops to $90.
Treasury sits at a nice $0.
Edit: Also laid track to Detroit.

Also, GT would've upgrade Ottawa with its extra Tile lay (eating M6) for $40.

Jesus christ these eastern cities are prohibitively expensive to upgrade.

I complain. Just shuffle trains around intra-company or something.
e: That or M1 will have had bought M17's 2 for all its treasury, I'm unfussed either way.

I am not too picky on what happens with respect to the General and moving trains around.

My preference is that we do something that keeps him from having to buy all the 4Ts into his minors. He will never recover those loans. I would vote for restarting at that point. The train rush would be brutal, and the game would heavily favor the companies that have the 2P or LP trains. Add in the started full cap companies next SR, and there is a very real chance that the 4Ts only run once.

Absorbs M1 for 2 shares and 20 to me

General, I've changed the Windsor tile you've laid to the standard Windsor tile becuase Windsor is not a Y city in yellow. It will make gently caress all difference because it's going green next turn anyway, but it hurts my OCD.

I think it favours me rather than the 2P or LP guys - because I have the permanent 5 in my pocket.

GTP upgrades L16
Runs 2P+G NW from Winnipeg for $140
Runs 3 SW from Winnipeg for $90
Full Pay $230 ($46 into treasury), stock double jumps to $110
Buy 4T for $300
Buy in the M26 for 2 shares and $20 (receives $134 from M26 treasury, for a net $114), replaces token with token from exchange.
Upgrades G17 with extra merger build
Buys in the share in the open market for $110
Treasury ends at $125


I am guessing that shares for mergers and stock redemption will be moved when the next sheet is formed? I think I got everything else entered (I didn't bother zeroing out the M26)

I forgot about that train and the fact that you can buy it in before running to avoid falling back.

M30 upgrades D12
Runs for $100, pays full (50/50)
Moves forward to $150

The General
Mar 4, 2007

So gentlemen, we meet again.


This is the end of times.
M18 connects to Sudbury.
Has no train, stock drops to $120.
Has to buy a 4T. $59 in treasury + $90 personal cash. Need to take a $151 loan. $227 to be paid back.

M7 Upgrades AD19
Has no train, stocks drop to $110.
Has to buy a 4T. $80 in treasury + $220 personal loans. $330 to be paid back.

M11 Upgrades Windsor
Has no train, stocks drop to $60
Has to buy a 4T, $75 in treasury + $225 personal loans. $338 to be paid back.

Total loans: $596
Total Debt: $895

I think I did that right. I haven't messed with the spreadsheet yet aside from giving me the trains and dropping their share prices. If there was an error with the above please let me know, if not, I will get to inputting all those numbers.

Edit: I think I can do this better by buying GWR's 4T with M7 or M11, then buying them out. Whatever, eitherway, I am not winning.

M12 upgrades AI14

I didnít think you would actually buy all those 4Ts. If you can buy the minors into your major, just pass a train or two along between them until they are all bought in. True, it is going to tank the value of the minors, but better than owing more money than you can ever pay off.

Oh well, my mistake for buying the 4T with the GTP. Should have just waited until 7.1 rather than enable the othe companies to gobble up the cheap permanents

One note: Prince George doesn't directly connect to Vancouver yet, there's a dot between them, so you may have to redo your route.
