Hello. Just checking a couple things, can you help?

- All the payments etc are made to the bank, correct? So when the bank runs out of cash, it's because all of it is with players or companies.

- Can a train move like this?

I would guess it can't, but I get the impression I read somewhere that you can.

Thank you

Yeah, trains can't run that way. Some games use simplified track, where such a move is possible. Here's an example of those tiles.



Everything that's not paid to companies or players goes to the bank so yes, bank will break when dividend payments to companies and players make it run out.

Aha, there's the tile that caused my confusion, ok then.

Thanks, Mikko and Henri.

Yes, the tile and route you gave is an example of a train having to "back up" around a switch - which is specifically called out as illegal by the 18AL rules.
