Having said that, our household has created a hack for all of our Rails games that would solves a lot of the other reviewer's problems. We bought a piece of 1/8" thick plexiglass (cut to the size of the board, which is standard for all of our versions so far) and a pack of dry-erase markers to use instead of drawing rails directly on the board- it's easier and keeps the playing surface pristine.
A real bonus is the information provided to go online and buy the computer version of the game, which is sort of adictive. You can get a 30 trial version for free that has only the map of the US. With the computer version, you get three play maps, one is the same as the board version (US, Canada, and Mexico) and your choice of others, including Europe, Australia, Japan, and England only.
I strongly recommend using all of the "speed it up" suggestions at the back of the instructions. The most effective of these are 1)deal each player 5 demand cards at the beginning, 2) Start with 65 building credits, 3)start with a "fast freight", and 4)allow 16 track units per turn from the start. Using these changes, a game with three players will last about 2-3 hours.
Another thing we found that helps a lot is for each player to have a notepad and pen to jot down planned moves. Otherwise it's easy to get confused and miss big plays.
After using the provided special crayons for the first few games, we switched to dry erase markers and a dry eraser. Both tend to get smeared and need touching up as you play but the dry markers are easier to mark your track segments with and are much much easier to clean off at the end of the game.
