Lets say I have a card to deliver Wood from X to Y so I decide to place my starting piece (locomotive) in City X.What do you mean by "that turn" ?
Am I allowed to load the wood as my action for that turn?
The SETUP instructions on page 2 simply involve placing of tokens.
9. Each player, in clockwise turn order,
places his Locomotive in a city of
his choice. It is okay for 2 or more
Locomotives to be in the same city.
On your turn there are 5 actions defined on page 5. "Load" is not one of them, but Load is described within action C (my highlight).
C. SET YOUR TRAIN IN MOTION
If your train is currently in a city, you may set it in motion and move it along your tracks.
The number of rails moved is equal to the speed indicated on your Locomotive. You may
Load (see page 4)a Cargo token before leaving the city. If you move your train into a city, you
may Deliver a Cargo (see page 4)if possible.
