as the title says - is there any way to know if you are buying the new 2010 edition vs the older one by looking at the outside box itself?

The back of the box will mention that the mexico map has a deck of cards on the second edition.

Found the exact text I was referring to:
Quote:
A Railways of Mexico expansion. This expansion contains a map of mid-19th century Mexico and a deck of Mexico Railroad Baron and Operations cards. Fewer Cities; long and narrow geography; and extensive mountainous terrain make this a unique and challenging map for players looking for a faster and financially tighter game experience.


So I'm guessing the OLGS you mention has the 1st edition.

per Eagles Games, you can tell that the game is the 2nd edition by:

1. looking at the back of the box by the barcode for the newer copyright date.
2. or seeing if there is a picture of the Eastern US map on the back of the box.
