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.
