I stupidly left it too long before I tried to get this expansion - and now I can't find it anywhere (in the UK).

Does anyone know somewhere to get it?

On the other hand, I heard rumours that "Rails of Britain" was going to come out; has anyone else heard that? Maybe I should just hang on for that?

I got mine from Shire Games some time back, but they don't seem to have them, and neither does any of the other shops I checked. It does seem like Milan-Spiele.de has stock though in case you don't mind ordering from Germany.

As for the expansion itself, I do like it and think it improves the base game (although I've only played twice so far so take that with a pinch of salt).

I'm kicking myself now, because I almost got it when it first came out.

Ah well, I found confirmation (of a sort) on the Eagle Games site that a "Rails of the UK" board is coming out:

I'll just have to wait the months until that comes out.

There doesn't seem to be any update on this information in a long while. It would be interesting to see if they do in fact bring a copy to GenCon next week. I'm also really interested to hear when Rails of Europe will be reprinted.

Hopefully someone going to GenCon can bug the Eagle games guys about RRT and RoE.

AFAIK Rails of Britain (or whatever it's called) isn't due until 2009. Again, SFAIK Rails of Europe is awaiting a reprint which IIRC was due fairly shortly - Septemberish?

I've been busy waiting for it to come out to get it back in stock again.

The "boardstar.net" link that Matthew posted just above was from Eagle Games suggesting that they would have their U.K. map available at GenCon this year. I don't think that happened?

As a side note, my FLGS (after much annoying badgering by me) just re-stocked a "bunch" of Rails of Europe. I saw at least 6 or so when I picked up my copy. However, none of the online sources I usually check still has any back in stock:
Funagain
Thoughthammer
Boardsnbits
Coolstuffinc
etc.

I'm a happy gamer again :)

If you have a favorite store in the UK, just have them call their games distributor (Esdevium).

Cheers,

Glenn
