The two maps share both a theme (in a way), neither of them use the production chart or dice, and also, for the first time ever, they share a playing surface as well.
Warning: These maps will offend railroad purists. The theme for both maps is a huge turn-off. I should be ashamed of myself.
Age of Steam Expansion: Disco Inferno
This Age of Steam expansion takes place in a Disco Inferno, where “satisfaction comes in a chain reaction” and everyone keeps shouting “Burn, baby, burn” as you set up routes for disco dancers (goods cubes) to be shuttled between various discothèques (colored cities) on a map covered with flames. Unique features for this map include empty cities that “burn to the ground” when goods are emptied out of them, as well as the ability to “chain” deliveries together from one city to the next up to your total Locomotive strength.

Age of Steam Expansion: Soul Train
Souls are in jeopardy, and only you can save them! Build a train to carry souls (goods cubes) from Hell to Earth, and then deliver them to their final resting spot in Heaven. This Age of Steam expansion uses the bottom of the “Disco Inferno” board for the first part of the game as deliver cubes from Hell to Earth. Then you flip over the Hell part of the board to show Heaven, which is then placed above Earth, resulting in a linear delivery system that provides a strategic challenge to Age of Steam players.
