They do not have to be completly empty but you cannot have any custom maps installed including the Firaxis “A Tycoon’s Tale” aka “Holiday Scenario” and “Sid Meier’s Railroads! Intercontenental!” Do not worry though, you do not have to reinstall Sid Meier’s Railroads! Instead all you have to do is follow these easy instructions.
  1. Go to the “My Games\Sid Meier’s Railroads!” folder, this can be found in the “User\My Documents” folder in windows XP or in the “User\Documents” folder in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
