RAILROADS IN 1831 - Grouped by Number of Players

Revised with corrections by Lou Jerkich, 5 September 1999.
This chart corrects minor errors in the original chart included by
Carl Burger with the game. Carl had a copy of this chart in his files.

All railroads start with 5 certificates of 10% common stock
in addition to the preferred and president's certificates shown below.

The bottom of each chart shows the total number of railroads available for play when that chart is used,
and the total amount of stations and yards, tallied individually and together.
These totals are thus cumulative for all preceding charts.

This first chart is for use in all games regardless of the number of players:
