New England Railways is a game about the first 25 years of American railroads. Players bid for railway links to build up their network. After the purchase of railway links, players can move a commodity from one city to its destination, gaining income for the railroads used to transport the commodity. If they don't buy a railway link in a round, they can move another commodity in the same round. Once all railway links have been built, players convert their holdings into cash and the player with the most money wins the game.

Rules clarification: When auctioning Railway Links, the Train Player starts each auction in the current round. Clarification courtesy of John Bohrer.

I have written a small Visual Basic program to assist with running postal games. This is classed as freeware and you're welcome to a copy.  Click here if you would like to download a copy or find out more.
