    I'm not sure if this has been covered. I've just got the rail yard and can still get bonus tracks but only collecting bells and whistles with possums, friends visits, clearing dumped houses and Lisa's recycling plant. So might be a good idea when you are close to get the yard with jobs off the board and leave those others until after you have it.

    I'm planning to leave the rail yard in storage as long overtime bonus is faster. Those who have the rail yard already, any idea when the tipping point is? Should I go to, say, the 10,000 b&w bonus or should I get the rail yard out earlier?

    Edit: I've just got the Rail Yard and the planned strategy doesn't work anyway. As soon as you get it all project are done via the Rail Yard, no matter if you place it or not. Bells and whistles can be won via Possums and friend actions only.

    Just to clarify, when the railyard is reached (unlocked):

    1) we still collect bells and whistles for the last few days of the event but only from things other than the project board
    2) we therefore don't get the project board bonus, but do still get the daily play login bonus (?)
    3) the bells and whistles from 1) and 2) will count towards "beyond the track" track pieces (?)

    4) we continue to craft with junk, metal, plastic, glass and hand these in at the railyard for blueprints and then win tracks. This will continue beyond the event.

    5) Sebastian Cobb can generate craftables or not ?

    Is the reward included in the daily project cap?
    Today I did 12800 bells and whistles but now the projects are locked even if the project cap is 14000

    No it is not. But the cap is cumulative. And you are allowed to go over the cap on the last one. So you probably went over yesterday and that counts toward today's cumulative cap.

    The reward isn't included in the cap but what could have happened is you went 1200 B&W's over the cap yesterday and it rolled over to today making it appear as if the cap was lower today.

    Got the railyard this morning. Follow-up question regarding daily play bonus box. Does this still give 5000 B&W after acquiring railyard or does it switch to the blueprints ? Anyone actually get theirs to confirm ?

    I unlocked the railyard, but I can no longer craft Bells & Whistles no more, it's only blueprints.
    Is there a way for me to craft the B&W for the Ahead of the Track bonus (at least the first few times when the requirement is still low?)

    edit: And the daily bonus for completing the projects

    No. People have said you now only get B&W from friend visits, clearing stink, and the possums. And the 5000 bonus.

    If you're grinding away the next couple of days, and don't get unlucky with the project board, you should make it. Yesterday I was at 105,000 and now I'm at 126,000. Without many possums because I've had to store my stations because of crashing. If things look tight, you will hopefully get an extra day or two to grind. This is assuming the end of the monorail event will have a download from the app store and you don't download until forced to.

    Well that's the end of another event! Or is it?! We've still got the Railyard to grind at for donuts and Monorail Tracks, and it may be mind numbing after a while, but who can turn down free donuts every week?! I can't!!

    I'd like to thank you all once again for making this thread a great success, proving yet again what a brilliant community this is! You've all contributed with data, advice, tips and tricks, which hopefully means that as many people as possible succeeded in getting all the prizes possible in this event, and I can't wait to see all the brilliant and creative Monorail Designs you come up with!

    I'd like to extend a special thank you to Aidx, who provided all of the Maths (with an s!) you saw on the front page during this event, allowing so many of you to get all the prizes, myself included! He even provided many of you with exclusive breakdowns of what you need to do to get all the prizes before Act or Event end.

    I really enjoy doing these threads, running them and keeping them running smoothly. But at the end of the day, this thread needs to work for you guys, so if there's anything you ever think I'm doing wrong, or something you think can be improved on, then give me a PM and I'll see about incorporating it into the next Event Thread, which I hope you will be pleased to know I'll be running again! Speaking of which.....

    See you at Hallowe'en!!!
    Hey guys, I'm AO (not AOF). I create and run the Event Strategy Threads.
