Description

Five years after its predecessor, Railroad Tycoon 3 offers you the opportunity to build your own railroad empire, this time in full 3D. The most adventurous tycoons may even try to become wealthier than their competitors online. The game still revolves around the three key aspects that were featured in the previous game:
  • Railroad building - Plot new routes, play with supply and demand, buy new locomotives in order to amass money.
  • Economy - Buy up businesses and industries or open restaurants and hotels near your stations to become richer earlier.
  • Stock Market - Invest in other rail companies, manipulate the market - the stock market may well make or break you.
