At the heart of the game you’ll find a strategy experience that offers more depth than you might expect. You’ll focus on growing your own railway company from zero to industry leader with plenty of opportunity to achieve this by yourself or team up with a group of like-minded players to achieve your goal.

In order to advance your status you’ll need to boost both your wealth and fame. For the most part this is achieved by devising efficient schedules to transfer the large range of goods across the game world. With the calculations over routes and prices updating in real time it’s definitely a challenge for even the most experienced tycoon management fan.

What really gives Rail Nation a huge amount of longevity is the massive amount of variables that are in the hands of the player. The huge range of train options in the game combined with the massive number of goods for transport will have you plotting moves ahead and crunching the numbers to maximise the benefit too you.
