In early 20th century Germany players are competing to build efficient rail networks to carry goods. But this costs a lot of money, so borrowing is heavy. Players have to be careful to borrow only as much as they need to bid for turn order, lay track, and move goods. At the end of each turn dividends (interest) on the bonds come due. Those who can't pay lose some of their hard-earn cash.
