Builds

GRAND RAIL EAST ATLANTIC TRUNKLINE and SLOW LOCOMOTIVES ONLY USED GENTLY ON HILLS build along the same route through Reading, Newbury and Whitchurch. Unfortunately one of them is in front of the other. It isn’t Great.

TIGER IN SMOKE continued through Haslemere, Petersfield and down to Havant on the LSWR alignment and is the closest to Portsmouth and Southampton.

MISSED, DELAYED AND CANCELLED RAILS went SW through Aldershot Farnham, Alton and down the Meon Valley.

SLOW WAGON IN FAST TRAFFIC built south thorough Horsham, Pulborough and Arundel heading for Littlehampton.

BASINGSTOKE ASSOCIATED STEEL HIGHWAY built a branch to Aldershot and then headed west towards Whitchurch, getting the bonus for building through Farnborough where I went to the Grammar school.

GM Notes

SWIFT's last build was to D19, not D17 as originally reported (the map has been adjusted).

Order layouts generally OK, but please separate the die rolls.

Please write town names in full. Acronyms can confuse me.

Next die rolls are: 6, 3, 4
