Does anyone know if there's a copy of the rules (or paraphrased rules) for 2038 online?

I'm gathering a group of players, and it would be nice to let them read the rules before we actually gather.

Not that I know of. If the players have played an 18xx game before, you can point them at the 18xx Rules Difference List:

http://www.fwtwr.com/18xx/rules_difference_list/index.htm

But given that 2038 is very different from other 18xx games, that's not likely to be of much use. You could also try asking someone on the 18xx mailing list if they have an electronic copy:

Also, reading Chris Farrell's old review gives a good feel for things.

Thanks for the pointers, I'll look into them!
(Some of the players haven't ever played an 18xx game, unfortunately.)

2038 predates PDFs. If someone wants to scan them in and produce a pdf, I have no objection.

Unless someone beats me to it, I should be able to do this tonight.

If you're doing this, it would be nice to scan both the Let's Play and the Rules, as the Let's Play diagrams are helpful.

(The Play / Design notes sheet, with the extra charts on the back, is a nice to have.)

Thanks!
