I'm thinking of buying this after seeing the hilarious Shut Up and Sit Down review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvmoWHNdATk), provided I can get hold of a copy.

However, one thing the reviewer pointed out as negative was that since you draw a station at the beginning of your turn, you can't plan in advance. But can't you solve that by drawing the next station at the end of your turn, Kingdom Builder-style? Can anyone with game experience kindly judge how that would impact the game, if at all?

Thanks!

Well, I suppose you could do that, but the best move will always depend on how the "board" looks at the moment you're about to play. It could be that what you've planned is still possible when it's your turn again, however, if there are 3 more players placing strings before you, it could be that it's not an option anymore.

Yes, we always do that. It speeds up play a bit, but of course there's a limit on how much you can plan - the situation will change more than, say, in Carcassonne or Kingdom Builder.
