Opening Private Draft 

I picked up the C&WI and grabbed the mail contract for $70 leaving me with $270 to start the first stock round. Kelvin grabbed the Meat Packing and the Steamboat. Matt grabbed the Mich Southern and the MC private. Nic had the Big 4.  Here's the game on 18xx.games.

First Stock Round

Matt had priority and started the Grand Trunk at $100, hoping to capitalize on the MS and MC privates. Next Nic started the NYC and floated it at $70.

Stock Round 4

When everything goes bleak...
Kelvin had priority and rather than starting a new company (B&O or C&O) he bought another share of the PRR. I counted my lucky stars and parred the B&O at $100. Matt purchased another GTR and Nic parred the C&O at $150, after much hemming and hawing.

ORs 4.1 and 4.2

We burned through trains and rusted first the 2s in OR4.1 and then the 3/5 and 4s in 4.2. By the time the C&O and B&O could buy a trains the cheapest was at 6 train for $800. (even after I issued 3 shares I was still short and has to sell a B&O and an IC share to afford the 6. oops.)
