Race results

BLACK SHEEP RAILWAYS surprisingly kept pace with THOR. THOR built a short spur south of Brynmawr, possibly as a defensive measure. STEAM MACHINES & FUNICULARS built into the valleyside but ran out of Build points and did badly in the races. ARRIBA ARRIBA ANDALE fell into 3rd place.

GM Notes

Each player may enter up to 5 out of 8 each turn – held over races don't count towards this limit.

Many races may require Joint Runs or Exchange of Running Powers – talk to each other. Make sure at least one of you specifies a route and the other one at least says "Joint run/Exchange with X, his route".

After the race, each player may build up to 8 build points, including known costs to others. The build points available after the races will reduce by 2 each turn.
