GM Notes

The Mississippi and Ohio are listed as bridgeable at specific locations, and yes you can bridge them in both directions. I suspect building through Missouri never entered the designer's mind.

Players can enter up to six races (plus any held over from a previous turn).

Note that the map has a row of mis-numbered labels in hexes running north-east from N36 (which is actually N35) to Z42 (actually Z41).

After the races, you may build up to 6 build points. Remember: known junctions and parallel builds are deducted from these points. The build points available after the races will reduce by 2 each turn.

Edited 19/5/20 to correct colour of FBR's connection to Covington.
