Pennsylvania Railroad is a big game, with a three panel mapboard, and it has the Pennsylvania Railroad, the New York Central Railroad, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, the Boston & Maine Railroad and the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad. The map stretches from Maine to Virginia, Missouri to Canada.

The game is for 3 to 6 players and takes about 2 hours to play. There is no luck, just hard driving economic warfare between the competing railroads. Railroad sell shares, build track, develop logging camps, mines & communities and pay out dividends to their shareholders. At the end of the game, the player with the most money wins.

Ohio had over 30 independent early railroads running all over the state. The plethora of navigable waterways and existing canals, coupled with often flat terrain, made the State of Ohio a Boom state for railroads in the beginning of the Railroad Era. When the big, better known major railroads (PA, B&O, NYC) finally reached the state, they usually just purchased these little pioneers or leased their trackage for 99 years. The State of Ohio wisely offered incentives for the construction of these early railroads. Everyone was happy except for the Canal owners!

1836 takes place in Ohio, the game lasts about two hours with 3-5 players and the player with the most money wins the game.
