50 4/19/2017 1:57:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Hello,
my father liked the trains and I liked to play as station master.
When he got old, he gave everything to a friend of him.
Once he brought me in Naples where there is a train museum.
In there, among other things, there was an *extremely* huge map with a lot of trains going at the same time.
Fascinating.
Congratulations for the hobby.

About the game, you choose either to stop or to keep playing "with a tortoise step".

Ciao Gianni
49 4/18/2017 1:16:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I need to let you know what's going on. My big hobby besides wargaming is model railroading. I just started a part-time Saturday Sunday and Monday job. I work 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday and a half day on Monday. I will probably not be able to post moves on Saturday or Sunday and but should be able to post on most Mondays. If this is not okay we need to delay the game till I finish work at the end of August. I need to work Gaines extra money to buy some track and if you train and did not realize the number of hours this part time job was going to require. Let me know and it's been great to play with you but I understand if my time commitment is not something you can live with. Hope we can game in the future
