Could someone offer language to clarify when river crossing tiles are necessary especially where rivers enter/exit cities? It is often difficult to tell where the river lies in relation to a rail's entry/exit point from a city where both appear on the same side of the hex. So, we found ourselves frequently debating if a river crossing was necessary. We gave up trying to read the board and instead began demanding a river crossing fee for ALL tiles leaving a city on a river hex.

Thanks,

jf

John, I am not sure what you mean by a "river crossing tile"? You use the same tiles as usual, but pay $1000 more for the placement.

The river rule is pretty simple:
if the rail line goes in and out of the same two hexsides as the river then there is no extra cost.
In all other cases you pay the fee of $1000.*
*) concerning hexes containing river

Examples:

Tulsa:
NE exit: +fee as you don't have the sharp curve in this game, so you cannot follow the river to the west

NW exit: +fee as the river from E to W (you can build that link without fee, but not from the city to W.

Little Rock:
NE: +fee.
E: no fee if building W-E

Dallas:
NW: + fee as the river runs into the city from the source.
E: no fee if building W-E
