There is a guy on eBay selling his homemade Canada and Mexico expansions for Rail Baron. Looks neat. Has anyone actually tried them? If so, what are your impressions?

Anyone willing to invest that much work must be dedicated, and therefore has probably produced something good. I have not seen his map in person, but it looks like fun. It appears that he did not use the RB Player map editor ( http://www.railgamefans.com/rbp/rbpe2.htm ) even though it would have made his task much easier.

I've tried them both.

-Quality was really poor.
-"Graphics" (hand drawings) of rail lines were hard to see.
-New Game mechanics didn't provide for a smooth game.


It sucked.

Thanks Jon. I just saw these on eBay and was really thinking about it until I read this.
