Just a wild idea here cairns. What if you just had the autodeploy on Sacramento and Omaha as the only troops you get? This will replicate the bringing in of supplies and men. Also I know that the building of the RR had its problems. If I remember correctly, the Union Pacific had Indian raids while the Central Pacific had problems with land slides etc. Maybe you can add in some killer neutrals to replicate that? Oh maybe have 3 or 4 spikes at Promontory Point. If I remember from just recently reading on it, they used an iron spike, a silver one, the gold one and I can't remember if they used a fourth or not. Each spike represented something. Just my $0.02 rambling. It might make the game a little more interesting.
