Fun game but it could be better and a little more challenging

I used to play the original (on PC, then Mac) back in the day so I was used to the format, goals etc. The old game was great for stock manipulations etc. which had more depth than the current game (I could make tons more money playing the stocks than I can now) but, apart from that, the new version still rocks. Graphics are great and gameplay is good. Runs under OS X Yosemite just fine. No problems.
This game had me hooked from the start, mainly due to it's easy to use UI and a rewarding feeling when setting up the perfect routes. However, as a fan of more in depth strategy games I feel this lacked complexity, after around 15 hours of gameplay you have worked out the optimal way of setting up routes, and playing a game on the hardest difficulty becomes an absolute breeze. However, don't take this negatively, I have still had many hours of enjoyment, more so as a rewarding simulator than a challenging strategy game.
Bought the game and installed it. Started the game and it crashed straight away. Shut down my computer and started the game up again and it crashed. Decided to re-install the game and now it is gone from my Mac Game Store Games Account.
Disappointed does not begin to describe how I feel.
This game is great. It allows you to shape a nation by connecting industry and people to various cities. You can play a sandbox mode called "Train Table" or play through missions. You can make it supper easy or supper hard. If I had to say something bad, I'd say... I wish there was more industry to choose from. Not enough different types of resources throughout the maps.
I enjoyed this game a lot, but after a few days—it got kind of dull and repetitive. It would have worked better if there were some expansion packs or different challenges thrown to make it more interesting. It was worth it though—best if you can try to grab it while on sale.
I am totally blown away by the game. I love model railroads and have always wanted one in my basement. Now I have something better. I love the graphics and the way the game plays, but it can be hard to keep track of all the stations demands and supplies. I like the way things progress and evolve over the time period. I like to watch the trains move thru their routes and stations. The stations at each pick up is amanited and is cool to watch. Love it, love it, love it.
