In a discussion with Anthony Carver, I heard that his group did an E / 10H train swap. Wanting to see how this affected the game, we played a 3 person session.

The mechanics are simply to swap the E trains and 10H trains. This will allow several runs of the E as a doubler train (we saw 2 ORs worth) before the D trains arrive.

E trains drop price to 600, 10H trains raise price to 800. Piece limiting factors occur on the E trains instead of the 10H trains.

Interesting - we did the same but continued to limit the number of 10H trains rather than E trains.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.
