With no mention of detrainable hexes in the supply sources in the Sicily game specific rules, does that mean that they are not a supply source in the game? With limited Rail Cap for the Allies and no Rail Cap for the Axis it made me wonder if the Detrainable hex source did not apply?

Detrainable hexes that can trace back to a supply source are always trace supply sources in OCS.

If the Game Specific Rules don't mention a rules change, then the Series Rules always apply.

From the Series Rules (4.2):

13.3c Detrainable Hexes. A railroad
hex is detrainable if it meets all of these
requirements:
• It has a village, city (any size), port,
or Engineer-Capable HQ (13.8a).
• It is under control (13.3h).
• It has a rail path free of enemy ZOC
back to a supply source. Extender
links can be part of this for trace
supply, but not for moving cargo.
Note EZOC cannot be negated to
move cargo, but can to connect with
a supply source.

Thank you gents, I just have to keep telling myself: play to the system rules unless it says otherwise in the game specific rules.

Hi Filippo,

I'm going to have to give Vassal a try one of these days. And if I'm ever over near Milan I'll drop you an emailcool.

I think I need to become more proficient in the ways of OCS first!!

Going to hijack this for a related question...

If a hex -- like Gallitello -- has a rail line passing through and a village but the rail is not drawn through the village, is it a detrainable hex. I assume so by the wording of the rule.
