Railroad Tycoon 3 features 25 scenarios challenging players to recreate magnificent feats of railroading history from around the world. Players can lay track (including tunnels and overpasses), pick from over 40 locomotives from early steams to modern bullets, choose to haul over 35 types of cargo in a dynamic economy, and participate in an advanced stock market.
The new 3-D engine takes the franchise to the next level, allowing smooth scaling from an 'eye in the sky' view of an entire continent down to super detailed close-up of a beautifully modeled train, building, or just the landscape.
Railroad Tycoon 3 also includes more multiplayer support than its predecessor, integrating an on-line chat and matchmaking service. To top everything off, the game's soundtrack features another installment of some of the best authentic blues, bluegrass, and Americana music around.

Multiplayer available in LAN mode only.

What a pity.... The game doesn't work with me at all ... Don't even get to the main menu ... Either it crashes in the middle of the video or when I cancel it ... Would be great if you found the bug and fix it so you can play it to give a Review.

Why is the Dirt still sold when it stops working? Intro video runs until just before The end, then the Program dies ... ... Files are corrupted. After the Repair, the Fun starts all over again. Skipping the Intro, you also get the lovely Windows message that a Program isn't working, but show the home Screen underneath. Otherwise as usual ... ... Faulty Files. My Hard and Software is tiptop, playing completely different Calibers. Trouble always only makes the old Dirt, which is rubbed under your Nose, because it was great, but today it doesn't work anymore and nobody cares drumm ... Just want to make a quick Mark ... ...
