*HD Version, different recording, pretty much same result*
Still on break from iRacing so I'm going to be posting some videos of another all time favorite game of mine Railroad Tycoon 2. You can buy it on Steam for like $9! If you love trains and are into being an entrepreneur and managing a company get this game.
Well worth the money, hours of gaming. I just did the level on fast speed, but hours of entertainment. Game is about 15 years old and I still love it!
Railroad Tycoon 2 : Episode 1 (Hard Difficulty) Gold Medal
Gold Conditions: Connect Baltimore to Washington, Philly, and Harper's Ferry, and Haul 12+ loads of cargo by the end of 1840.
Episode Summary: Start year is 1830 so you have 10 years. I chose to get the John Bull engine early because its by far the best engine you can get in this episode. Also keep Thomas Crampton as your manager, he'll allow the John Bull to run faster then it normally would, faster engines = $$$.
I connected to Relay first, and then to Washington, I issued stock almost every year to fund the company's operations(railroad expansion). I also used just 1 train to keep costs of operations down(fuel, maintenance, etc). By the end of the episode I had enough company cash to fund expansion to Philly and Harper's Ferry all at once, without taking out any bonds! The 12 loads of cargo took care of itself over the years.
