About This File
Goal: Tasmania in the late 19th century, the mines are booming, and the apple farms are blooming. This period of relative prosperity offers the greatest chance to build a railroad which will last the test of time. Re-write history by establishing a successful railroad with enough assets to survive when the bottom begins to fall out of the mining industry in 1911. A word of warning though, Tasmania is small, poor, mountainous and remote. Importing locomotives from Britain is expensive, track building is virtually prohibitive and besides the exploitation of a few resources, there is very little economic development. Perhaps this is why Tasmanians enjoy their beer so much?
Author's Comments: As the potential profits of Tasmania begin to be realized, can you build a rail that can succeed where so many others have failed?
