How does overbuilding work?

Like, if i overbuild my port in the rail era, after that port has been flipped, is there any benefit I lose?

If I need that location and can still flip it, is it a good idea?

Table Manchester has come to an end, result:

1st Holsten 204
2nd Geigerm 148
3rd JohnL 141

Good game everyone.
I think I am done with the learning phase, but I think the startplayer has a huge advantage in brass. This time it was me. :)

If the port is already flipped, you lose the VPs but not the income. If the building isn't flipped, there's no change; you're just replacing one unflipped building with another. It's not something you want to do in the run of things, but can be useful. (Except of course if you're overbuilding another player's coal or iron, which is something you should do, preferably with an evil glint in your eye.)

Good score. Yeah, I think you can lose the L-plates, or local equivalent. :)

Starting player is nice, getting first go at the cheap iron, but it isn't a massive advantage in my experience, and the way the cards fall can soon smooth things out.

Thanks all. Oldham is about half-way through the rail phase, so not too long to go. :)

Hi everyone. Apologies for the radio silence. The usual Circumstances Outside Our Control, I'm afraid.

Oldham did finish (me 210, Irishdomer 165, janehatke 164 (!)) so I'll do the new rankings and games today.

Thank you for your patience...
