Description from the packaging.

Build your own Railroad Empire across 12 screens of tracks, towns and terrain.

The popular hobby of model railroading has entered the computer age. Use the "construction kit" to lay down track and create a landscape as you design your own model railroad system. When construction is complete, you take the controls as engineer. Chug along in a turn-of-the-century, steam-driven Iron Horse, or zip by in a modern, diesel-fueled Powerhouse. Score points as you successfully transport cargo and passengers to their destinations... on schedule, of course!


  • Experiment with sample layout screens.
  • Run 2 trains on the same layout- but watch out for collisions!
  • Create your railroad system across 12 screens- view each section individually, or get a bird's-eye view of the entire landscape.
  • Save layouts to be enjoyed over and over.
