About This File
Goal: Weidenthal County, located in mountainous central Germany, hopes to benefit from the post-war boom that has gripped the country.
The bankruptcy of the old narrow-gauge railroad from Neustadt to Niederlungern in 1950 has left Weidenthal without rails. Now, the county council hopes that you can build a new line in standard gauge.
The county's economy could use some modernization, too - the traditional toy-makers of the area have to make the transition to plastics to stay in business.
Bronze: Connect Weidenthal to Neustadt-on-the-Bäke and Niederlungern.
Silver: In addition, haul 40 loads of toys (anywhere).
Gold: In addition, haul 10 loads of goods to Neustadt-on-the-Bäke, and reach a book value of 16.000.000$.
