Thanks Walter. I want to buy this game to play with my son who is a HUGE train buff. I grew up in CT so the town locations are not a problem for me but I didn't want to run into a rules issue while trying to play with him. He's only 8 so delays in checking and clarifying rules will put him off.
Sure enough. I completely understand.
The revised rules are in Mr. Tummelson's hands now - assuming he is OK with it, they'll be posted shortly here on BGG.
