StationedOut is a new UK’s convention dedicated to train games, organised by Craig and Dave from The Train Rush podcast.
The first edition will take place 12th-13th October in Basingstoke (about 80 km from London).
Biggest blog dedicated to 18xx games!

I think the link should be dot info ( StationedOut.info ) instead of dot com.
Maybe it is time for someone (hint, hint, nudge, nudge) to create an international calender for 18xx conventions?
In Sweden we will have a small 18xx convention this fall. It is run twice per year, for 3 days, and only 18xx is played. It is about 20 persons. This will be the 4th time that convetion is held.
Takes place in Växjö, in South East of Sweden, which is located 385 km (as bird flies) from Szczecin in Northern Poland. Now I don’t think the Växjö convention has had any visitors från abroad, but that might change if the convention continues.
Otherwise we do have 18xx rooms at two of the larger general games conventions in Sweden:
– GothCon, each easter in Göteborg, on the west coast of Sweden
– LinCon, during the Assencion holiday, in Linköping, 200 km southwest of Stockholm
Both these have around 2000 attenders, but only maybe 10-20 persons play 18xx. GothCon has been running since the 70s, and LinCon started 1984.
I will be running the 18xx room at LinCon 2020.
When is it?
6th to 8th September 2019 is the 18xx convention in Växjö, Sweden.
