Just confirming...

Laying an upgrade tile costs $20. Laying the green upgrade for Detroit itself is another $40. So, the cost to lay the green upgrade tile in Detroit is $60. Unless one lays a green upgrade tile that connects Detroit to Windsor which increases the cost another $60. So, laying a green upgrade tile in Detroit such that Windsor is connected to Detroit would cost $120?

Not exactly. Laying a tile or an upgrade is either $20 or the cost printed on the hex - not both. So it would be $40 to lay the green upgrade and an extra $60 if you complete the connection to Windsor for a total of $100.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Pete is correct. It's $100, or $80 if the corporation owns Tunnel Blasting.

Sadly this is an area with little standardisation or agreement as to what is the better representation.

This was a bit of an issue for us at first. Detroit was the only space with a purple triangle that was not an edge purple triangle. So, at first we were not clear if the $40 cost shown in the purple triangle was only if the upgrade laid connected Detroit to Toledo. But since the purple triangle in Detroit was clearly not on the edge, we decided that it was indeed a cost for any green tile laid regardless of connections.

Correct. Just like the cost of the four mountain spaces H14, H16, G17, and F18 is for any yellow tiles laid in them, plus possibly more for the last two depending on whether certain edges are connected by new track across those edges.

Would the cost of only upgrading a green Detroit tile to brown be $20 or $40?

$20. All upgrades are $20. Extra costs are printed on the board, but once you have upgraded a tile, there is no more pre-printed cost on that hex (there might be a cost on a hex edge, though, if you build across).

One catch is that you could potentially have placed the K green city in Detroit in Phase 2 (oriented towards Toledo, Port Huron, and the W and NW edges). In that case, the brown upgrade would be $80, as you'd have to pay the mountain buster hex-edge fee then, on top of the $20 to upgrade a tile.

Thanks Alex, I thought that was the case but just wanted to double check.
