Railways of the Western U.S. is an expansion for Railways of the World. Designed by Rick Holzgrafe, this expansion map uses the score track, pieces, tiles, money, trains, bonds and rules of the original game, but comes with a new map, featuring the Western half of the United States. The basic mechanics and gameplay of the original game are unchanged, as players build track and deliver goods to increase their income and earn points, but the expansion also includes new pieces and rules. These extras may optionally be used with this expansion as well as with the base game and all other expansions.
It is 1863 and the construction of the first transcontinental rail system has begun. This mechanized transportation network will take years to complete, but it will render obsolete the wagon trains of old, and revolutionize the economy of the West. Will you have the courage to build over the Rockies or through the Sierra Nevada? Will it be your railroad company hammering the ceremonial Golden Spike at Promontory Point? If you have the skill to successfully connect the East and West you will join the pantheon of historical railroad visionaries! Railways of the Western U.S. is another exciting new expansion for the highly popular Railways of the World series.
