Rail Baron - The Short Game Variant

The following is a variant designed by Gary Gygax (D&D Fame) and originally appeared in a Rail Baron article published in Dragon magazine. This variant nicely retains the fun and interesting portion of the game (those initial Railroad company purchases and acquiring the money to build your empire). It avoids the frustrating late game long and depressing downward spiral towards bankrupcy for some players. And it also removes the unconventional final train chase sequence of the game. This variant probably shaves at least an hour off of the overall game.
