Here is a review, worth a fiver!

Sid Meier's Railroads!
Take 2/PC (£34.99)

The famous Sid Meier returns to his cerebral classic Railroad Tycoon series, but this time the game is set in a fully realised 3-D world, and is clearly designed to appeal to model railway enthusiasts just as much as die-hard business sim fans.

Building up a railway empire is relatively easy, and laying tracks and building stations is simplified and more forgiving. In past RT games, stations had to fit between static buildings in the heart of cities, which could be frustrating. But now the buildings float around to accommodate those all- important train stops. As before, you can buy the stock of your own company and that of rivals. The business side has been streamlined, too, which should make the action more involving.

Whether moving mail and passengers, or more lucrative medicines and arms, it is difficult not to get drawn in. The missions or multiplayer challenges are set on maps in North America, continental Europe and Britain. Beautifully crafted, Sid Meier’s Railroads! is a masterful experience — as you would expect from the master himself.

HOT!!! I was waiting for this to drop a little, this is more of a drop than I needed. Ordered one too.

Great game at a great price! Only problem I have with it is that it doesn't like my Turion X2 CPU so it ran much slower than on my old laptop

Thanks for this 'ontheballcity' - ordered!

I can't order it. When I press buy it comes up with a page saying "Website has encountered a problem". I can go on to any other page on play so I'm not sure what's going on.

same thing happened to me. If you go back to the main front page of play and search for railroads in pc games then click on buy it works. hth

I played this game when it first came out & it's as buggy as hell. I see that they haven't released any new patches since then either

metacritic.com/gam…ads

Reviews seem quite bad, shame really. Especially regarding the bugs, they really should have released patches and it's lame that they haven't.

Shame really, as I've been looking out for a game like this, especially if it has a "build it like you are a communist dictator and money is no object" i.e., fantasy model railroad mode. OTOH it is £5 .... argh!

edit: There is a version 1.1 patch on the Railroads! website. I don't know if it fixes the mentioned bugs. Graphics are pretty though...

Thanks for this. been looking for this game.

Shame. That's obviously why it's £5. I loved the original to.
