The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

We play the 1830 Coalfields variant including the Reading railroad. Rules can be found here rules1830.rtf and The Coalfields.zip.

I created a new Dropbox folder named "Round 6a 1830 Coalfields".

And to create some atmosphere for our game, let's welcome Loretta Lynn:

Stig, you have been assigned the Priority Deal!
Please note, that in this game, the privates may be sold to coorporations for 1/2 to double their face value. That means that the C&A can be sold for $320 (it is probably the best private around as it pays $25 dividend and also comes with a 10% PRR share).

Game is 1830.
Player 1 is Stig.
Player 2 is Dan (huffman123).
Player 3 is Ron.
Player 4 is Chris.
Player 5 is Dan (oeolycus).
Each player receives $480 from the Bank.
The Bank has $17600.
Start of phase 2.
Bank size is $17600
================ Start of initial round ================
Stig has the Priority Deal

I suggest referring to me as "Huffman" so there is no confusion.

Alright - but as I already had a randomization of the player order, you have to live with "Dan (huffman123)" for the duration of this game. Hope you don't mind meeple

One thing I see different from the rules in the zip file:

The N&W has normal shares, as opposed to one 20% Presidency and one 20% "Regular" certificate.

If you are are playing with the Reading, then the N&W should have two 20% certificates. If you are playing without the Reading then it should have the normal 20 and 8x10 split.

Is there a button we can press to get that? or does Rails not support it? I did a quick 3-player game and bought all the shares normally....

Ron, if I'm reading your question correctly, I asked how do we make N&W have two 20% shares. And the answer is: Play FTF.

Dan (huffman123) bids $115 on M&H. Remaining free cash $365.

My question was "what did I do to earn such a tip?" meeple
I just checked the options with RAILS: I can't find a parameter for customizing the N&W. So we have to play with whatever RAILS has on offer ...

Ron bids $170 on C&A. Remaining free cash $310.

I saw the movie recently - with Sissy Spacek as Loretta and the young Tommy Lee Jones as her husband! Awesome!
