About Railroad Tycoon 3

In Railroad Tycoon 3 players can realize their dream of founding and expanding a railroad empire. By building rail lines, purchasing trains and transporting cargo to launch the railroad, players can burst onto the scene during the 'Golden Era of Railroading' and sustain dominance through the modernization of the industry. Players must expand their business into major cities, acquire the latest locomotives, force competitors into bankruptcy, and manipulate the stock market to become the ultimate Railroad Tycoon. Make a fortune the old fashioned way - take it from someone else!
