About This File
Goal: Twenty years ago gold was discovered in Victoria. The peaceful and sparsely-peopled colony was rudely jolted as thousands of prospectors poured in from all over the world.
Now prosperity has brought a need for a modern transport system to link up the settlements and allow industry and agriculture to develop.
You can start anywhere, but your goal is to join the capital of Melbourne to the regional centres and country towns. Each regional centre must reach a quota of loads to and from within a calendar year. Your quota depends on the difficulty level you have selected.
The centres are: Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Echuca, Portland, Horsham, Sale, Wodonga, Adelaide (in South Australia) and Sydney (in New South Wales).
For Gold, connect 60 towns and meet all 10 quotas; for Silver, 45 towns and 8 quotas; and for Bronze, 30 towns and 6 quotas.
You must also support industry by carrying a total of 400 loads of clothing (for all meadals), 200 loads of furniture (for Silver & Gold) and 30 loads of goods (for Gold).
Author's Comments: I think this map is in reasonable shape, but would value some more objective eyes having a go at it. Set after the goldrush in Victoria (Australia), you have to build a rail network to serve the new population centres and developing industry and agriculture. Please let me know what you think.
