The Civil War is over! America strives to tame the American Continent and the key will be to connect sea to shining sea with iron horses and steel rails-- thus opening the vast untamed lands to millions of adventuresome citizens weary of war. This strategic railroad game extends from the muddy Mississippi to the coast of California.
Each player founds railroads, determines share distributions and capitalization, invests in various companies they and others have founded, expands the companies across the country, and competes for the most victory points (not net worth) at the end of the game. Railroads are built across the river vallies, plains, deserts and ultimately, over the great Continental Divide!
