John Bohrer' 1834 is set in one of the earliest and most important locations in the development of railroads: Belgium & Luxembourg. Providing service to Antwerp, linking international markets, fostering the steel industry in Luxembourg and obviating the Albert Canal are important features to this game. The late appearance of electrified railways has a big impact. For 3-5 players, one needs a copy of the Avalon Hill 1830: Railways & Robber Barons game to provide the trains and tiles, although 4 special tiles are provided with 1834. The player with the most money wins the game.

Tom Russell's London & Northwestern is based in England & Wales at the beginning of the great Railway Age. In addition to using Tom's seminal 'leased track' mechanism, it includes the benefits of improved technological developments that characterized railways in the United Kingdom. For 3-5 players for about an hour, one page of clear rules and absent of any luck, this game is quite challenging, as we have come to expect from Tom's designs. The player with the most money wins the game.

John Bohrer's Southern Pacific has six railroad's vying for dominance in Texas as they approach from Lousinana, Arkansas & Oklahoma in the 1800s. Share owership finances these railroads, the the president of each railroad determining the dividends paid to the stockholders. Track is sometimes sold between railroads in savvy moves to clear the way. For 3-5 players for about an hour, one page of clear rules and absent of any luck, this game is not very friendly. The player with the most money wins the game.
