Anyone who either loves the Tycoon games or tniras or Sid Meier for that matteover a year ago
Anyone who either loves the Tycoon games or tniras or Sid Meier for that matter, should check this out. I remember buying the original RRT because it was a Sid Meier game and I was not at all disappointed.You can't cross laid track anywhere as you can in Sid's new Railroads , but I did like the numerical elevation detail so you could precisely lay your track right where you wanted it.
