Excess on the Orient Express is the 8th mission in the classic campaign of the game. Its about the development of the European Orient Express during the mid to late 1800's. These were the win conditions. We start at 1850 Bronze: Connect Paris to Constantinople and haul 24 loads between the two cities by 1889. Silver: Same as above, but by 1887. Gold: Same as above, but by 1883. Essentially this is a "coast to coast" map. But unlike the American or Canadian "coast to coast" maps, you have the added challenge of purchasing territory from all the countries in between. So you need to consult every country and pay them money for track rights. So the first thing to do is just build lines between 2 ports - which generate passengers. I ignored Paris and built a line between La Rochelle and Caen - both had ports. That started generated amazing money. Then make one giant line between Paris and Constantinople! Single track is more than enough. Also ensure we have dummy stations to replenish Water, Sand and Oil. You have an option to go via Germany north of the Alps or go via Italy - south of the Alps. I chose Italy, just to make things challenging as you had to cross the alps. However, there are certain "events" that happen in German side that will affect u! I wont spoil it! Made some 10 trains between Paris and Constantinople and getting Gold was easy. I love these message boxes!
Crossing the Great Divide is the sixth mission in the classic campaign. Essentially, its about the construction of the Canadian Pacific's transcontinental railroad during the late 1800's. These were the win conditions. We start at 1868 Bronze: Connect Halifax to Vancouver and haul six loads between the two cities by 1896. Silver: Also have a company book value of $20 million. Gold: All of the above, but company book value of $50 million. We either start at Halifax or Vancouver. I decided to start at Halifax, as historically we go from east to west. The logical thing to do was to connect Halifax and Quebec. I guess most do that as its also on the route between Halifax and Vancouver. But i decided to make things more challenging and saw St John which is perched in the eastern most corner of Canada. It had lots of houses and 3 ports generating passengers. So I created a giant bridge between Halifax, NS and St John, NL. Both the cities have 2-3 large ports, which generated insane number of Passengers. I had 4-5 trains and that gave great starting income. Once you have adequate income start a single track straight line track between Halifax, NS and Vancourver, BC. Also take care to create pass thro stations in between for sand, water and oil. Once you have trains running between east and west coast, enjoy windfalls incomes! I could get silver with around 25 million company net. 50 million and gold would be tougher! I observed that bridges are only single track - they don't do double track for some reason. That slowed down my early production and also slowed down the rate at which my 6 trains generated revenue between between Halifax, NS and St John, NL. Also i could have had more trains between Halifax, NS and Vancouver, BC to generate more revenue. I think gold is achievable with this additional challenge. Did you guys remember this campaign scenario?
I just finished playing the fifth mission of the classic campaign of Railroad Tycoon II. The essence of the scenario is the tour of the American northwest of Teddy Roosevelt in his election campaign of 1904. You start on Jan 1st and to get gold, we need to visit 16 stations by midnight January 14 (Jan 15). We have 3 choices of locomotives Choice 1: 4-4-2 Atlantic locomotive. Choice 2: 2-6-0 Mogul locomotive Choice 3: 2-6-0 Camelback locomotive I chose the Camelback, which had great grade performance and i knew going west would be full of grades. the blue waypoints, show the route i took A fun relaxed scenario, where all u have to do is watch the train and enjoy the ride! But i could only visit 13 cities and get Bronze and just managed to do it. I'm not sure how to get gold here. Anyone managed to get the gold medal in your first attempt?
