Last Train to Wensleydale

The second railway game in the Treefrog Line. As some of you may have guessed from the title it’s set in the Yorkshire Dales.

The aim of the game is to move stone, cheese, and various passengers, from the hills of the Dales to the major trunk routes run by the North Eastern Railway and the Midland Steam. Valleys play a large part in dictating where you can build track. Once you have built a line you must acquire second hand engines and rolling stock to move the goods and passengers that you connect to. Such a line quickly becomes unprofitable and it pays to have one of the two major companies take it over from you.

Building track can also be made more difficult by local residents who object to railways being built on their land. To overcome such opposition you require influence in government to arrange the necessary compulsory purchase orders.

The game is for three to four players and plays in 60 to 90 minutes. The level of complexity is similar to Tinners’ Trail.
