Description from the packaging.

The year is 2022 and global warming is threatening the very existence of mankind. Scientists put "Operation Blind" into effect to reverse the process, but something goes seriously wrong! The Earth is plunged into a nuclear winter and the sun becomes permanently eclipsed.

Centuries after the disaster, a new world order has been established and the Viking Union holds the power. They dominate the rail network and the only source of money- coal- and they aren't going to easily give up their monopoly.

You command a gigantic steam powered train and use it to journey to towns to trade in supplies, slaves and mammoths. Your raw instincts will help you pull your survival plan together from the information you obtain along the way. Your mission is vital: free the planet from perpetual winter and economic slavery.

Your quest for the sun is one of danger and excitement...become the Arctic Baron... free your people!
