Hexes: 81 38 5 1 26 3 7 3 9 20

1 Town Where tiles with a single town (no station token space) may be laid.

'OO' Yellow hexes where green tiles designated as 'OO' tiles with two separate station token spaces may be laid.
Off-Board Static, where trains may run to off-board areas, typically with values that vary according to the phase of the game.
