instead of everyone rolling his one dice for the amount of points to build, have only one person roll, and everyone use the result. It does not matter who rolls, could be the same person all over.
(I know this is not a new idea, but I wanted to collect it here)

Again, this is in the Railway rivals rules - in the 3rd edition (1980) it is described as an option (though everyone used it in postal games), by the 5th edition (1990) it is the stated way to operate.

By the way – I was thinking about this, and if you go this route, why even bother to roll? That takes time, just make everyone build four steps turn. Wouldn't that just be the most efficient way to play? If everybody is sharing the die roll, I'm not seeing what exactly does it add to the game.

When you build six units, you have more options to block opponents. When you can only build 1, the sabotageing options are diminished that turn. So the roll would both add breathing space and chocking turns.
