Description Edit | History

From Warfroggames.com:

Steam Barons is the first expansion for Mayfair's Steam.

Two maps are included in the game, one covering eastern USA, along with parts of Canada, and the other covering northern England.

The maps are suitable for five and six players if you use the base or standard rules from Steam.

An additional set of rules are included which allow you to play the game in a different manner. The Steam Barons rules introduce a stock-market system to the game. Now you can buy and sell shares in the railway companies. The biggest advantage of these rules is that the maps become playable by between two and six players.

The game also includes 144 wooden train pieces which must be used with the Steam Barons version but can also be used with the base and standard games. An additional 38 tiles have also been included to avoid shortages with the larger maps.

7 US Company Cards
A set of six company ownership cards depicting US railroad companies. The colors match the pieces in the Steam Barons game. I like it because it is more evocative than the company names included in the game. These go real well with the Transcontinental Map.

19 Replacement Stock Chart
Fits in the Mayfair Steam box! Also, the payout information is displayed in the Performance Track instead of a separate table so it should be easier to figure out what each of the payouts will be. To anyone with some graphic skillz: feel free to make this a whole lot prettier!
