    The pulling up of incomplete tracks must be a house rule. For the official rules say (at page 7) "Once tracks are placed, they may not be removed by the players. Players may build cross-over track pieces as necessary..."

    Reading through an (unofficial) FAQ it says: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/33164/railroad-tycoon-summary-of-common-qs-and-as-on-bgg "Blocking: 1. A player is not allowed to build a track which "directly connects" to another players partially completed link. 2. A player may "redirect" the last tile in a partially completed link by simply removing the last tile in the incomplete link and then proceeding with their normal action. You cannot rip up tracks, except for the last piece of incomplete track. This can be lifted and relaid, paying the price of relaying, and then lay up to 3 more pieces of track as part of the same action. Again Keith Blume has confirmed this." I am not sure what "directly connects" means i.e. putting any tile next to the last piece of tile of an opponent or putting a tile with the tracks in the tile matching up to the opponents tracks forcing their direction? I am still looking for something directly from the game designer. We have been playing that way for several years though it rarely comes up. The player turn-order auction that we used is a variant as well and differs from the original rules.
