I'd like to offer a trade of my Age of Steam 3rd Edition plastic trains for the wooden discs of a previous edition. No real reason, I just prefer the discs.

I'd be surprised to find someone who didn't prefer the discs. The trains are terrible!

I've heard people say "Steam is definitely better a better game than Age of Steam, but I don't know which to buy because the other has plastic trains"

Two absurd ideas in one sentence.

Do what I did. Buy them here. Top quality. Recommended. 12c each.

Those are the thin 4mm ones (and the super chunky 10mm ones), the ones used in AoS are the thicker 6mm ones used in lots of warfrog games and basically unobtainable in quantities smaller than 5000-10000 per colour.

What I did was find a Steam owner willing to trade their discs for the plastic trains.

Hmmmm, maybe I'll buy the 4 mm discs and post over on Steam's page hoping for a trade as well.

No, just the one; the part about plastic trains.
