It's an overlooked theme of the game but (based on the back of the box of the original game) these games are supposes to be based on a group of people that are challenging each other to see how many of them can travel to the most cities by train. The original game happened in 1900. The expansions are easier to figure out (1910 and 1912). Switzerland was in 1905. So back to my question, does anyone know in what year T2R Europe is supposed to happen? Along the same line, how about Marklin or Nordic Countries?

Ticket to Ride: Europe is based on the European map of 1901. That fact's revealed in an endnote on the last page of the rules.

Ticket to Ride: Märklin is played on a modern-day (i.e. post-1989 map), judging by the borders and the country's neighbours.

Just to quote the rule sheet, "Geographical note: We strove to accurately represent the political boundaries of Europe in 1901 and preserve the cities' common name in their local language at the time. For gameplay purposes however, we were forced to slightly adjust the position of certain cities on the map."

We had some interesting discussion about some language/geography aspects of the map. See: TTR Europe: Language dependent?
