Description

America's industrial boom would have been unthinkable without the railroads. It was only possible to open up this huge country by transporting the necessary materials over long distances. The industrial development of North America is therefore synonymous with the expansion of the railroad networks of individual companies, many of which were founded at the time with the help of investors who put up the necessary capital. The players try to make as much profit as possible at the end of the 19th century in America by buying shares in thriving railroad companies. There are three available options: auction a share, develop a company, or expand a railway. By the shrewd use of these choices, players can increase the value of the railroad companies, thus increasing their profits too. The player who invest most skillfully and manages to generate the highest profits wins the game.
