Model Railroading and Chess

Model Railroading, particularly operations, has quite a similarity to chess.

  • All pieces (cars) are always visible.
  • The goal is to move the pieces to certain destinations in as few moves as possible.
  • Moves must follow certain rules.
  • No two pieces can occupy the same space.
  • Some pieces are superior to others.
  • Series of moves must be planned in advance.
  • There is no time limit.
  • It is a game of strategy, there is no element of chance.
