Railway Empire – The popular railway simulation
Railway Empire is a very popular railway construction game with 91% positive ratings on Steam and has ranked at the top of the quality scale in the 2019 and 2020 economic simulations. Now Nintendo Switch players will soon be able to enjoy the railway building strategy.
The campaign plays through the history of the railroad in North America starting in 1830. In later DLCs, important episodes of railway development in Europe, South America, and other areas are presented in-game for replay. Most of the time in the campaign missions we have to prevail against one or more computer-controlled AI opponents, set up special routes and meet time constraints for certain delivery quantities. In addition to routes and train lines, we can also acquire and expand other businesses to expand our economic empire into other areas.

Official description of Railway Empire:
About Railway Empire: North America, 1830: The United States is not yet out of its infancy, and a merciless struggle for railroad supremacy is already erupting.
Build an elaborate network of railroads with your own stations, maintenance buildings, factories and attractions. The choice of locomotives – over 40 historically reconstructed models are available – influences the efficiency of your company just as much as the choice of personnel, the clever organisation of the route and a high degree of utilisation.
The achievements of five different eras offer numerous research opportunities, with more than 300 inventions and improvements such as seat upholstery, refrigerator cars or on-board toilets at your disposal.
But don’t lose sight of your competition – up to three rival tycoons fight with fire, steam and steel for control of the tracks, rails and railways. It’s high time to ruin their day by robbing them or using industrial espionage!
Railway Empire – Nintendo SwitchTM Edition lets you build and manage your train empire on the move. You’ll also get the DLCs Mexico, The Great Lakes and Crossing the Andes with additional scenarios, music, locomotives and a night and snow mode for all game content.https://www.kalypsomedia.com/eu/631/Railway-Empire/Download-Version/Nintendo-Switch
