The Single-player Scenario includes these three eras::
  • 1850-1889: “The first era”In 1883 the first Express d’Orient left Paris for Vienna. Vienna remained the terminus until 1883. You must build your fledgling railway by establishing an extension to the Orient Express route, to take passengers from Austria to Varna in Bulgaria. From here they will cross by ferry to Istanbul. Later you will expand your network to include Istanbul, and Moscow.
    • Connect Vienna, Budapest, Bucharest and Varna,
    • Build terminals in both Vienna and Varna.
    • Deliver the first Orient Express passengers from Vienna to Varna.
