Wondering if anyone is aware of any errata with this game?

None I've ever seen. And we've never needed it. (I've played this one a LOT.)

There's no mention of coastline in the rules.

By strict interpretation, that means ocean coastline can be built across at no extra cost.

But that doesn't sit well with me since no other game in the series handles the coastline in that fashion.

I'm not sure why you say it must be free. It would be equally valid to say that it is prohibited. How did you come to your conclusion?

The two obvious possibilities suggested by other crayon rail games are:

1) Prohibited - no building across coastlines
2) +3 in addition to other terrain costs.

The rules state that players can build from any milepost to any adjacent milepost, except where prohibited.

But I agree that the coastline should be handled one of the two ways you listed.

We play Iron Dragon more often than India, and in Iron Dragon there are coastal inlets that cost +3. I don't recall anyone building along the coastal areas in any of our IR games, but should it happen I am pretty sure we would default to rules we know from other Mayfair variants.

For the computer version we ended up prohibiting builds across the coastline. This appears to be the most popular choice, and is what has been used at the WBC.
