This thread is open.

GameID=29981 Is this a common tactic to build into Ellesmere port, and the links into it, which means no one else can build the shipyard in Birkinhead since its impossible to get coal there?

Yes. You can reserve the space for your own shipyard or just make sure nobody else gets those points.

Maybe you can clarify a point concerning the virtual link between Liverpool and Birkenhead. Say you are in Liverpool. Does the virtual link to Birkenhead allow one build a rail link between Birkenhead and Liverpool, taking the coal required from the Port in Ellesmere Port? Then, you could build the Shipyard in Birkenhead bringing the coal in via the rail line. What's the ruling on this?

Sorry I mistyped in the previous post; I mean to say building the rail link between Birkenhead and Ellesmere Port. Is that allowed?

From http://www.treefroggames.com/brass

"The virtual link between Liverpool and Birkenhead can only be used to allow a player to use an Industry card to build in Birkenhead. It cannot be used to allow you to build a rail link between Birkenhead and Ellesmere Port."
