  1. Episode 221: Binding With Iron

    No mention of an earlier Avalon Hill game, Dispatcher, in which two rival dispatchers tried to move train pieces across a rail system with two divisions. One division had lots of inter-city traffic to deal with. The other division had a steep grade requiring helper engines, of which the dispatcher had a limited supply. Both players had to meet schedules for 1st and 2nd class trains while squeezing slow freight ni where they could. An added annoyance was a stack of incident cards that might cripple a specific train or fog in the mountain pass, etc. It was out in the late fifties, early sixties. I have a copy that I still pulll out once in a while. It's good solitaire since you are mainly fighting the schedule.
