Game: 3971 - can't build rail link

This thread is closed.

Hi Hammerite,
something seems amiss in game 3971. It's my turn and I can't seem to build any rail link to Wigan even though I have industries in Preston, Blackburn, Bolton, Warrington & Runcorn and Liverpool. I've tried them all and keep getting the error 'You cannot build that rail link, as you have neither connected to nor built in either location.' Any ideas?

Same here! IN 3978 I can build canal between Manchester and Warrington and in 3947 I can't built coal mine in Burnley. Yikes!

I'm getting the same error (albeit in the canal phase).
Tottenham Triway (sorry, don't know how to find game number).
minus_273c (Yellow)
Very definitely built in the location (Manchester).

I am having this same error in #3965. I can't build from Manchester to Oldham, yet I have industries in both places.

The same in game 3791. I am red and I cannot build where I like

Same error in 3901 - for gray.

I'm having the same problem in game #3929. Trying to build a canal link from a city i have both industry and a different link to to one where I have neither. Normally not a problem but it says the following:

The system found the following problems with your move:
You cannot build that canal link, as you have neither connected to nor built in either location.

I assume it's the same issue as everyone else...

I am getting the same error in 3747. Trying to build a rail link from Colne to Burnley in this case using coal from the demand track. Looks to be the same thing showing up elsewhere.

As an aside, I greatly appreciate this site! I've been a serious board gamer for years and years, but this is the first site that got me spending time on the internet enjoying this.

I am having the same problem. can't build canals or rail links even when connected. also, couldn't build in manchester even with a rail link to it. had to use the manchester card and not an industry card.

Same error in #3836; couldn't build a rail link between Blackburn and Bolton despite haven ing just built a coal mine (with a Blackburn card) in Blackburn.
