Railroad Tycoon 2
This 1998 strategy was popular in its' time and still has some following. I have produced a scenario based on the railways of Scotland
A guide to getting it going under Win10
To be added
The area used is north of Glasgow and Edinburgh, it is possible to create all the routes that existed to reasonable accuracy and gradients.
Of note is the use of two zones as traffic sources called 'England via Carlisle' and 'England via Newcastle'.
The terrain was created from the data in Microsoft World Atlas as explained in the file RT2maps.doc and then locally edited to suit.
There are two scenarios in each file, one aimed at following the life of the Highland Railway expanding from Inverness, and the second for operating as any of the other 4 Scottish railways.
Win conditions are based upon timely expansion and connecting to cities whilst remaining solvent.
