I made this dividend tracker out of plywood etched and cut on a laser, with an extra set of tokens for 1830: Railways & Robber Barons, then yesterday I made an additional set of tokens for 18AL. We played 'AL last night with the Dividend Tracker, and it worked like a charm. I still lost, but that is nothing new. I think I'll be making extra tokens for every 18XX game that does not already have dividend tracking integrated.

Nice. Wish I had the tools to do that.

BTW, dividend trackers don't need a 1 or 2 as far as my experience goes.

A few games have 1Ts. Should the home station be a 10, then a dividend of 1 could occur.

Also some 18XX games provide for paying half dividends. I tried to make it so that it would work with any game, that way all I need to do is make an additional set of tokens to keep in each game and just have one board.

And some games allow the company directory to declare any dividend between $0 and a tenth of the total value of the company's train's runs, with the rest of the money going into the company treasury (eg TvdP's 18India and my 1839).
