"If the investigator is on a City space, he gains one travel ticket
of his choice. The investigator cannot gain a Train Ticket unless
there is at least one Train path connected to his space. Likewise,
he cannot gain a Ship Ticket unless there is at least one Ship
path connected to his space.
If a player ever has more than two travel tickets, he must choose
two to keep and discard the rest."
1. Can a player Prepare Travel anywhere else on the board that is NOT a city as long as there is a train or ship path connected to his space? The city gives the advantage of buying either type regardless of the path connected. Is this correct?
You can only prepare to travel if you are in a city space as noted on the back page of the Reference guide. The restrictions quoted apply to cities.
2. Can a player have two ship tickets or two train tickets or 1 train and 1 ship? For some reason, we have been playing you can have a maximum of two tickets as long it is 1 train and 1 ship. However, the rules don't mention specific type. So I believe in our next game, investigators have up to two tickets of any type. Is this correct?
You can have any combination of tickets.
