can't connect cities Tue, 28 April 2009 14:30
Is anyone else having problems connecting cities. Despite the right # of trains, single route on the double lines etc I am unable to connect between 2 points.

Most annoying. Would love it if someone could advise the fix. Sad

On which map, with which version (downloadable or webbased)?

And how many players?

On US, Europe: 2-3p doesn't allow second route to be used. Per the rules.

I generally play the US map and the # of players does not matter. A game I just completed would not allow a 3x black/3x green train to be placed. Instead allowing only a 2 train combination or take 2 cards from the deck.

Very irritating especially when means conceding a game i could have won

Thanks - # of players doesn't seem to matter.
The problem happens on a single route as well.

It sounds to me as if you had already placed 43 trains. Therefor only allowed to lay 2 more.

Yes, I'm almost sure that's it.
You can't imagine how often people (including me) forget about those pesky little plastic trains Smile

Had not known about the 43 train rule but will count the next time this happens.
Thanks all

It's 45 trains. You can't have more than 45 spaces of trains on the map; you can't make any play that would take you above 45. (less on certain maps. Nordic Countries is 40, as is Switzerland.)
