But I don't, so that's the end of that... :(

[Finally a game where I understand the rules!]

Hunslet 2890 has led an exciting life: first as an austerity locomotive in WWII, then owned by the Coal Board, private owners and railway lines, before modification to become No 10 'Douglas', "one of the friends of a famous blue engine".
