Description

Rails Across America is a game of railroad empires in North America, covering the period from 1830 to the near future. It is a real-time strategy game with a "sim" flavor. Rails allows hundreds of tracks with thousands of trains crossing the continent. Players focus on strategic decisions: where to expand, where to compete, and when to call in favors from government officials, union leaders, and other powerful figures.
