Welcome to Turnpike Falls, a region located in Northern USA. The main city, Serenity, is the only settlement above 1000 people. A few other major settlements can be found across the region but your biggest source of early revenue will be in cargo you can haul. There is a mainland covering about one third of the map. In addition, we have four larger islands and several small ones. This makes boats a valid option for many journeys.
v 0.91 - 2016-06-23 - First update to Turnpike Falls. This release changes the year from 1890 to 1860. I have added, removed, and resized several towns. Industries have been slightly more balanced, with some more difficult-to-reach industries providing a higher output.
v 0.9 - 2016-06-10 - First release! This release has been labelled Version 0.9, a sort of beta version. It should be fully playable but I have not balanced industries or given a lot of thought to the NewGRFs used. They should all be on Bananas. Please give me feedback on NewGRFs and on the map itself!

Two large screenshots of areas in the region zoomed in: In the second photo, you will see famous landmark sights such as the towns of Eastwood and Clint located on opposite sides of the river. There is the Bay of Pigs, not to forget the beautiful Isle of Rudge which is found due west of the small village Trevor.

That would still retain the whole Wild West idea and give you 20 more years to build up your initial company.
Globally, 1870 represent the general start of the Second Industrial Revolution, technology and industry found synergy in advancing railroads, mining and manufacturing, and the start of industrial advancement for communication, electricity, petroleum, chemicals and the applied sciences.
I'd suggest that if you want to represent a more rough, challenging start to your scenario that you start it in 1850 or 1860. This will give you quite a bit of time to build infrastructure before the roaring '90s come along!
