Railway Empire - Features:

  • Run a railway empire: Railway Empire plays in North America in 1830. The railroad is still at its beginning, but more and more people are excited about this new technology. You are sure that you can earn a lot of money by rail. That's why you start your own railway empire. However, as the route network in the United States is not really developed yet, you will need to build new routes and connect the main cities to your route network. Of course, the construction of new stations, maintenance buildings or factories is also one of your tasks. Hire suitable personnel and ensure that your routes are well utilized. That's the only way you can become a nineteenth-century railway tycoon.
  • Historic locomotives and wagons: Of course there was no intercity expresses in 1830. Instead, there are locomotives and wagons available in the game that are modeled on historic trains.
  • Explore new technologies: Especially in the early years of the railroad, new technologies were constantly coming onto the market. To keep your trains up-to-date, you need to research the technological innovations. There are over 300 technologies in the game that can be explored throughout the game. You can equip your trains later, for example, with on-board toilets or refrigerated cars.
  • Eliminate your opponents: Of course, you're not the only one who wants to make money on the railroad. To make sure that your rail empire remains the most successful, you have to get creative. How about bandits who rob the trains of the competitors or industrial espionage?

Conclusion: Railway Empire is not only for railway fans an absolute must. The game is especially fun because of its impressive graphics and its many possibilities.
