Sid Meier's Railroads!



Alcohol Reference
All aboard!

Build a railroad empire and shape a nation!

Lay track, route trains and watch the world come to life in this compelling mix of train set and business simulator. Become the ultimate railroad robber baron with the drive to shape a nation, build an empire and amass a fortune.

Spanning the history of the railroads from the steam engines of the 1830s to the bullet trains of today, Sid Meier’s Railroads! for Mac is a bold re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon (1990), the game that launched the “tycoon” genre.
  • Steam across 16 maps and seven historical scenarios that cover over 150 years of American and European history.
  • Control 40 historically-accurate trains, from the 0-4-0 Grasshopper to the TGV bullet train, customizing them with your own colour schemes and liveries.
  • Engage in corporate warfare with rival tycoons, slick entrepreneurs and robber barons such as J. Pierpont Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt.
  • Choose your cargo wisely! Marry the supply of natural resources with the demands of industry to create a thriving economy.
  • Trade stock, build industries and bid for patents to steam ahead of the competition.
  • Build the model railroad of your dreams in “Train Table” mode, where your imagination is free from the pressures of finance or competition.
  • Sabotage your rivals and monopolise the industry in LAN multiplayer mode or online using GameRanger Technology.

  1. Love trains
    by Karl F. Davie Burgdorf, USA - Nov 30th 2015

    As a railfan and a strategy game fan, I expected much from this game ... and got much of it. While the game is fun to play, it lacks some of the feel of some previous classic railroad games. Nonetheless, the graphics are decent and the gameplay keeps it interesting.

  2. Still A Great Game
    by Colleen B Walsh, USA - Oct 19th 2015

    Much better graphics than the older version and camera angles are terrific. I would prefer an overhead view but I do just fine without it. I find that running many single tracks is working better for me than double or triple tracks where I get traffic snarls at the stations and my wait times are astronomical. I love this game and depending on your level you will find the challenge you want. Hours and hours of fun and instruction on geography as well as train history.

  3. Playing with trains is always fun
    by JRJ, Netherlands - Jul 25th 2015

    I had a lot of fun figuring out how to build good railways and manage the flow of goods.

    Too bad the AI competition has no design skills! But hey, you can buy them out and abolish their ugly works, so all is well.

    It does take some time to learn how to make things run smoothly. One line per track goes a long way.
