Hi All,

I own the following train games:
- Steam
- First Train to Nuremberg
- 18AL
- Poseidon (train theme disguised as a ship game)
- Bullfrog Goldfield
- Brass (I know it isn't a train game, but...)
- Thurn & Taxis (I see this as advanced Ticket to Ride...my perception atleast)

I also have Acquire and Imperial if I think of stock trading or owning bonds etc. So just wondering how different would Baltimore & Ohio be? Or is there any other train game which is unique to the ones I own that I'm missing out?

Thanks for the help.

B&O will feel like a simpler, less interesting version of 18AL. To me B&O is a lighter, crummier 18xx game, and I would always pick 18AL or Steam Over Holland over B&O.

edit: I know there are B&O fans who will disagree with me, but personally B&O took out the stuff I like in 18xx, and the way the trains work (rising upkeep costs instead of rusting) really drags down the game. Simplified route building (no determining runs), no train rush, a disincentive to buy new trains all hurt this game, IMO.
