As a new Age of Steam fan, I just spent a lot of time reading through all the Rules forum threads and existing FAQs. A lot of questions really were "frequently asked"!

I have consolidated all this into a single unified quite extensive FAQ in the BGG wiki, organized to follow the rule book structure, so that everyone can edit and improve it.

I hope it is useful for others learning the game. Enjoy!

It is here: Age of Steam FAQ

It's not entirely clear why some of those questions were frequently asked. People seem to enjoy making up new rules, maybe?

I don't psychoanalyze the frequent questions, I just notice them.

Are you going to phrase them consistently as questions or as notes? It's probably also worth noting that this is entirely about the base game and can't be used to adjudicate expansion maps which do other things.

I went mostly with statements rather than questions. If the slight style inconsistency bugs you, feel free to edit!

Right, I took it as given that expansions would have their own FAQs dealing specifically with their special rules and confusions. But it may be worth explicitly noting that indeed in the AoS FAQ. I shall do so now - thanks for the idea.
