peddlers? that's why we have river boat merchants and trading posts.  A wagon train or gypsy caravan would make more sense.

Sorry @brads3 , you have to talk to Necora about that.
I only thought of a floating hostel for nomads.
But I like the idea of special traders!

hmm i could tell you how i think it works if it helps? i think it works like a production building but instead of making tools,or wheat flour. it takrd different goods and "makes" or gives out various other iems. it is specific as to this+ this= that out. the indian tradeing post is pricey. the items you get are not cheap.

That's what I meant too, but I wrote peddler.
I meant paddler. Hundreds of them. :)

The steam boat is not forgotten, but I think I will just sit back and
see if someone intend to make a trader chain with steam boats.

One of my all time favourite books is George RR Martin's Fevre Dream (well before GoT, 14 yrs), and it's so dog eared after all the years of reading, it was a rare Hard cover (rare, because few made it into circulation at the time in Australia, it was well before GoT was ever written), and it talks about the trade on the Mississippi and a few other things, and it paints an amazing imagery of life on the water.

But, I also spent a lot of my teen years in Echuca/Moama and the family having a houseboat, the way of the river has always called to me (which is why I have often posted the images I have of the river over the last few months, waiting for magic ;) ), so to see these little Ladies, and the possibility of more to come, well now.  That's just superb!!

A floating hostel is perfect, it's historically accurate, and of course there is the trade boats, the hotels, the pubs, the illegal smugglers and prohibition era goodies, the chapels, the brothels, and of course - the tourist movers.

Anyone that's interested, a beautiful Australian mini series:  All the Rivers Run, show life on the Murray River, and it certainly has a lot of charm.

Also too, the theme would also suit the Gold Mining / Mining themed sets as well, there's a good cross over there, and for the Wild West theme @kid1293

Flat bottomed barges, the dinghies, the run abouts, the large glorious houseboats, the small little tow boats, taxis etc.
We've barely scratched the surface of what could be done.   

Now, if only Luke had unlocked the secret of movement ingame ;)  Watch out horses, wagons & carts, choochooos ... water vessels, it's all there, simmering away.

Ah, nostalgia.  My heart does love the water. ;)
