roll only one die (instead of two as in the rule). That way, if the roll is lower than three, you cannot build over a river or in the mountains, and you need to roll a five to build inside mountains.
It makes the building phase slower, but we thought more interesting and tactical.
Could be used together with one roll for all players, but not necessarily.

I have never seen the Dampfross rules.

Railway Rivals, on the other hand, went through multiple versions of the rules. The first appeared in 1973 - nearly 10 years before boxed game versions appeared. In every version of the rules I have ever seen (I only have 3rd and 5th editions now) or played, the building phase works with a single die roll.
