About Railroad Tycoon 3

Railroad Tycoon 3 offers a fully realized 3D gaming world, scaling from eye in the sky views of entire continents down to incredibly detailed close-ups of beautifully modeled locomotive, buildings and landscapes.

Players of Railroad Tycoon 3 begin the game with a modest sum of capital at the beginning of the Golden Era of Railroading and expand their empire into major cities, while purchasing the latest locomotives, forcing competitors into bankruptcy, and exploiting the stock market to become the ultimate Railroad Tycoon.

As well as over 25 challenging scenarios to recreate magnificent feats of railroading history from around the world, players can also lay down track, complete with tunnels, bridges, and overpasses, then pick from more than 40 locomotives - from the original Planet and Norris 4-2-0 to monster trains like the 4-8-8-4 Big Boy and the Shinkansen - the original bullet train. Players will haul over 40 different cargos between more than 150 different buildings, in a dynamic and fluctuating economy. Manipulating Railroad Tycoon 3's realistic stock market with margin buying, short selling, hostile takeovers and mergers, players can build up a massive fortune and even prosper by running their railroad into bankruptcy.

Railroad Tycoon 3 will have multi-player support, including an integrated chat and matchmaking service. The game's soundtrack features some of the best blues, bluegrass and Americana musicians in the nation, playing authentic music that even modern music enthusiasts will enjoy.
