This map covers the history of California from its annexation by the United States to the end of the 1880s.

There are four eras.

The game will run on ‘slow time’: a month of game-time will take three times as long as normal in real time.

This map runs at ‘slow speed’ (three times slower than normal), and covers three eras from 1890 to 1932.

In this scenario, there are three types of passengers – 3rd, 2nd, and 1st class. Villages, towns, and cities produce third-class passengers. Towns and cities produce 2nd-class passengers if supplied with 3rd-class passengers. Cities produce 1st-class passengers if supplied with 2nd-class passengers.

The industries that produce raw materials (grain, milk, swine, fish, and wood) also require a supply of third-class passengers in order to produce any output.

While third-class passengers pay very little, they are the essential basis for the entire economy of the map, and thus a valuable resource. Take advantage of the available chains of production to increase supply, to make available higher-value-added cargo, and to achieve the scenario goals.

You can also increase supply by building service buildings in the communities. Hotels, ticket offices, restaurants, post offices, and railway express agencies will increase the value and supply of passengers, mail, or express cargo.

This scenario covers much of Southeast Germany and surrounding lands, including Frankfurt, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Cologne and Berlin. It covers the time period 1835 – 1980. The trains of this scenario are slanted towards diesels and electrics, so the late era is recommended for most players.

(Same goals, corrected city names and sizes, more evenly-distributed starting locations, changed local tunes to match the actual region)

Guide the Balkans through a turbulent century with your skills as a railroad tycoon. In 1870, the Ottoman Empire still rules much of the area. Even after independence, the Balkans remain a trouble-spot. The Orient Express provides some glamour, nonetheless. After the Second World War, rebuilding the region is an uphill struggle.
This is a challenging scenario.
