Description
Railways on the Isle of Wight were always a triumph of public service over profitability. The first railways on the Island were party built in response to Queen Victoria’s love of Osborne House, and ran from Cowes to Newport, & from Ryde to Ventnor down the east coast. Work started in 1860, as an odd collaboration of the South’s bitter rivals, the LSWR and LBSC. Further lines were built by local companies, often with high hopes. Eventually trains ran from Ryde to Ventnor, Freshwater to Newport, Cowes to Ryde via Newport, Newport to Sandown, and Merstone to Ventnor (the most picturesque line on the Island). A branch line from Brading to Bembridge was added to the main East Coast line. The Southwest of the Island was never connected to the network, as the terrain and lack of prospective traffic made this region unviable. A proposal to build a line down the southwest coast was forwarded in the 1880s, but the line was never built.

Rules

The ‘18xx’ series:
1860 is part of a series of games, all based on an original game by Francis Tresham, called 1829. There are various games in this series which have been published over the years, including 1830, 1853, 1835, 1856, 1870, and 1825. The object of the game is to gain wealth by investing in railway companies, which then build railway networks to gain revenues for their shareholders.
