A Railways of the Eastern U.S. expansion. This expansion contains a map of the mid-19th century Eastern USA and a deck of Eastern U.S. Railroad Baron and Railroad Operations cards. These cards encourage players to explore many possible strategies each game such as connecting to remote cities to earn service bounties, building hotels and major lines, and delivering different goods to demanding customers. These are just a few of the many strategies you can pursue to become the greatest baron of the 19th C. Eastern U.S. railways!
