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

Hi, Mario! A few comments:

-- In an operating round, the stock price is +1 if payout is >= current stock price and < 2x stock price. That's what you said, but it may not be clear to everyone.

-- And it's +3 if stock price begins > $150 (or >= $165) at the start (e.g., before you adjust.)

-- On Stock round I'd say "buy one certificate". This then includes buying the President Certificate (which is 2 shares).

-- "A sale may not result in more than 50% of a given corporation's shares being in the Stock Market (exception for bankruptcy)."

-- Phased out trains can't be bought

-- Bankruptcy does not end the game (unless all but 1 player go bankrupt).

(This latter is worth saying because many other 18xx games have the game end upon 1 player going bankrupt.)

In Stock Round should be: "You may come back". It is not guaranteed since if all players pass you won't have the opportunity.

Operating Round: change "build stations" to "buy 1 token" [can't buy more than 1 in an operating round, though you might place several due to buying in Private Cos]

Particularities:

Add: "Corps may buy Private Cos for up to list price (not including debt)."

Add: "Phase 4 removes any phased out 2 trains still in play."

Minor grammar nits in the Particularities section:

#3 "corporation" (singular)

#6 "is" possible (not its)

#8 "don't" or "do not" (not doesn't)

Couple of other things...

Stock Round. First line,

It says "Per turn sell one or more shares and than buy one share or pass".

"and THAN buy" should be "and THEN buy".

Also in the stock round section, "Buying shares". I would rearrange it so that "launch a corporation" comes first, "buy shares from a corporation" second, and "buying from the bank" last. As this is the order that would happen in the beginning of the game.

And last, and yes this is nit picking, you have for "Launch" a company, pay "twice". I would think pay "double", reads better, as you are buying two shares at the same time.

Just my two cents.
