Author's Comments: The A1-S1 vs B1-T1 test. I've tried to get both these standard difficulty runs the same. But with buildings and houses deforming terrain they may be slightly different. The test I do is to run 6 cars (4-pass 2-oil/ 250 tons) to each station. Press 'A' to see the book. Check status page. After 6 years subtract the profit from gross to see expenses. Check the number of loads in the period. Good is 90. Total tons = 90/(6 carloads per trainload) times 250 (tons per train) = 4000 tons. Divide tons by (expenses + cost of engine).
In TSC you have to know the economics not just the abilities of each engine.
Right now the world slope view (green, yellow, red numbers) doesn't seem to run quite right as the numbers seemed to be slightly different than true slope. (If you click the track building tool and run some track over the existing track and not build it, that should clear the numbers to the true value.)
