Why not ask for an update of Railroad Tycoon?

Much as I might prefer RRT3, I'm at least able to run Railway Empire.

In the end, I like sandbox games as a whole. I burn out 4X games though.

The beauty of a sandbox game, is there's no need to win. It's just playing.

If I can get the stuff out of storage, I can set up real trains. I wonder how the cats would like to watch N scale and HO scales trains? Or would there be a lot of train wrecks?

Planning to do the same this winter actually. Bought the wood for the train layout, just a matter of time.

Over the past thirty years, there have been many of us Railroad Tycoon fans who have done just that.

You might want to consider purchasing Railroad Tycoon 3 from GOG.com. GOG is good about getting older games to run well on modern systems. You could probably catch Railroad Tycoon 3 on sale for 50% off or more sometime in the not-too-distant future

Already a fan of GoG Greybriar :)

Had thought of that too. Sometimes if ya wants something, it's best to just pay a few bucks :)

Railway Empire looks good. Like an updated Railroad Tycoon 3. Which I worked on the expansion kits. I wonder if it has the same industrial and stock system.

For those looking for a Railway Empire alternative, there's also Mashinky. Don't think I've seen anyone mention it.

Looks good from what I saw.

Agreed. I haven't purchased it as yet, but it looks like a neat and somewhat unique take on the genre, with the 2D planning aspect.
