Comments: My edition is from 2002. The designer is Alan R Moon.

Game phases:
1) Draw cards (Refill your hand up to four cards)
2) Play cards (All players select a secret card from their hand)
3) Reveal cards (at the same time)
4) First track-laying turn (each player from the starting player lays down a track)
5) Second track-laying turn (...and again)
6) Pass the train (change start player)

I really like this game. Although simple rules it's quite deep with many choices.
