Kelvin SVR(68) freight

Bart FDR(62) freight
Kelvin E&H(62) express
Bart WVR(54) local

The opening flop, was pretty universally panned. But we kept it. I had first pick during the initial parliamentary round and I selected WVR, a company with a local charter as the first company to bid on. Nic passed and Kelvin bid me up to 10. I then parred it low, at 54, as it's a local and therefore the subsidy constantly trickles in 10 bps per city visited.

Next Nic put forth the NGC, an express near London, I passed and he and Kelvin bid it up to 20 before Kelvin dropped out of bidding. Nic parred it at 62. After that, Kelvin put up the FDR, a freight, on a port in the South near London. I've seen Kelvin do very well with a freight in this area, so I bid and won. (Briefly I was suspicious, this was a set up, which is always a fun strategy on the opening parliamentary round.) But I took it and parred it at 62. Next with me out of the remaining bids, Kelvin put up SVR, a freight one city away from London. Neither Nic nor I bid, so Kelvin parred it at 68 so that he could run first. Then in the second parliament round Kelvin put up the E&H, a company with an express charter with a 0 bid. No one bid, so he was able to start that company at 62.

End of 2.1

In stock round 3, I saw that there were still 2 openings in London so I put up the N&E, a freight sitting next to London with a starting bid of 0. No one else bid and I parred it for 100. I needed to sell a couple shares of FDR to float in the stock round. No one else put forth a company during the parliamentary round, but Nic floated the WstI for 105 during the stock round. By the end of OR3.2 Nic had folded the WstI into the NGC and I had folded WVR into FDR. Also at the end of round 3.1 Kelvin folded the E&H into the SVR.

End OR 3.2

End of Game

The game ended after OR 6.3. The endgame trigger was the purchase of an H train during round 5.
