I started playing it (3) again, and I forgot about how much I enjoyed it.

These pictures are from my "Western USA" sandbox. I created a lot of stories about the trains I used.

For instance, I have "The Western Spirit." I started out as a challenger pulling ore from the mines to other cities. When the mines closed down, I preserved the locomotive by leaving the station and keeping it parked there while the rest of the track was torn up. When I connected San Francisco to Salt Lake City (the full distance), I rebuilt the track to get it out, and I now use it as a special travel train between these two cities (sort of like the American Orient Express).

Perhaps you're right. That reminds me of one bug with the game - the left side of the loco has the numbers backwards. :lol:

Here's one of a government geep. Here's the story. I have two guys walk in, saying they work for the government. They tell me that they need to have three trains using my lines, so of course, I let them. They use three GP9s, but I know nothing else, except that they arrive in Carson. Some think that they transport weapons and ammo to Area 51, but I don't ask questions.

The second one is from one of the cut scenes.

The graphics aren't bad. I do notice that the cars are modern, but I do that too, so we can overlook that.

Guys, you all are definitely NOT oldschool ;) RRT 2-3 is too boring for me. I prefer RRT or RRT Deluxe.
All of my screenshots are a rescalled - original ones were 320x200 (made with DOSBox' screenshot feature (Ctrl+F5)), but they were just to small and uncomfortable to gaze at them. Besides, they give exact impression of how RRT looked like on PC (the Amiga version was much better. Fortunately, deluxe version fixed most of graphical drawbacks).

Ah, that takes me back. I remember how I loved to build huge bridges across the Channel, trap a train on it, and force it to crash.

Why does RRT1 still win? It's so pure! It's pure win!

No really, I always loved upgrading stations... I always wanted to make them look good. 8)

Then you've been missing out. RRT1 was awesome! I loved the way they represented train crashes with the little guys running around.
