Playing through the first map of Railroad Tycoon II, on macOS, using the PlayOnMac Windows emulator. There are several possible strategies that can be used to completed this level, we have chosen to completed the short line from Baltimore to Relay first. A more aggressive strategy may well have paid for itself in increased revenues resulting for the bigger carriage distances to Wilmington or Harper’s Ferry.
n.b. I have since updated this video with an alternative strategy based on an initial line to Frederick as well as the line to Relay using a bond issue and stock issue to raise additional capital - that strategy being much faster.
