There seems to be many comments about the game that suggests the end drags on past the 45 minute estimate due to share values slowly reaching the $350 end trigger.

Has anyone come up with additional end game triggers which could occur before a share reaches $350?

For example, the 1830 Cardgame overview says the following;
The game ends after all shares have been purchased, all "8" trains have been acquired, or twelve dividend payouts have been made.

Selling out all shares should trigger the last ors. That's always been my thinking.

It's not possible to buy all shares, due to the limit of 9 shares per player...but you could end the game when 18 shares have been sold or (probably better) when all railroad corps have been bought. Sounds like a lot of people do this anyway but factor in the incomes they would get as the share prices rose, assuming all companies always pay dividends once there are no corps to buy.
