Thanks for this John, I assume this will be in their smallest size box (ie Aton, Rat Hot etc)?

I don't know, James, but I think that Bernd told me that it was a new size for Queen.

I guess that owners of the previous Wabash Cannonball edition will get the Narrow Gauge expansion directly from you?

You can get it only via the Essen 2009 set:

The Narrow Gauge expansion from Queen works just great on the Wabash Cannonball map! Queens' games are available to the general public all over the world, so we won't be offering the Narrow Gauge aside from the 2009 Essen Set.

I also expect that some of this year's Essen Set buyers don't have the original Wabash Cannonball and might put their little Narrow Gauge expansion up for sale/trade here on the geek, if that is important to you.

Yes I like it, but I guess the expansions will fit in same box as the game so as nice as it looks, it will probably end up empty in the back of the shelves...

The components will not match and the wooden trains will not fit well with the smaller hexes of the original.

Also we'll pay for Erie Railroad which is of no use to those like me who already bought it from you.

If people are going to sell their limited expansion for a small fortune on eBay i'll get some spare cubes and will make my own.

John,

I'll definitely be picking up this expansion when it comes out as CE has been a huge hit for us...aside from the addition of the Erie (I purchased it directly from you), can you give a hint or two about what the Narrow Gauge expansion will add to the base game? Thanks...

James pretty much has it right there, Mitch.

As the standard gauge railroads reach certain areas, narrow gauge railroads come into play. If someone builds a little narrow gauge railroad in a mining or timber hex, standard gauge railroads are blocked from that hex. There are other elements, but I will leave some suspense, OK?

227mm long
167mm wide
30mm high
OK, James?
