tl;dr version: if you like trains, steam, horn sounds and the spirit of exploration, don't hesitate to spend your 5 bucks on this and give it a try.

Ooooh my, i used to spend hours and hours in this game back in the day, just meditating at all those toy trains doing their job from A to B, back and forth.
For its price on steam now, i guess it's worth the money and you could give it a try. Yes, this game could've been deeper into the economics and route planning, the controls and menus could've been done better and there should've definitely been an order queue for multiple car and locomotive constructing, but eh, it's still a very cosy game to spend some of your time on.

For:
+ pleasant graphics, music and atmosphere of the 19th century America,
+ a campaign mode where you cross the country coast to coast developing your network,
+ lots of locomotives and car types being gradually unlocked,
+ ability to upgrade trains, depots, city districts, manufacturing companies and what not as the trade volume grows
+ ability to rob and sabotage your opponents

Against:
- the menus and controls could've definitely been better
- the limitation of train route length to 5 stations
- certain technical problems (see below)

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The optimization in this game kinda sucked a decade ago, making my PC lag when processing lots of trains in a widely developed railroad network by the middle of the campaign mode. I don't think this should be a problem with the modern PCs, but the code is kind of unstable as it is now: i myself cannot access savegame files as the application reacts with a crash to every attempt to load them. Be warned.

It is not easy but it is fun. You'll start off maybe restarting your missions a couple of times to find the right paths, You have to hire Prospectors, Trappers and even gunslingers to clear the way ahead. Th engines are realistic, as is rate of travel and carryng capacity. You'll have to be careful to keep a reserve for repairs too. I played this game to death 10 years ago. They fixed the bugs I remember, it plays fine on WIN 7, and just plug your IPod or phone in to play music and turn off the soundtrack. It is worth every penny of $4. Enjoy.

It's an alright game. A bit basic take on TTD and one that feels sorta dated in comparison if only because of its 3d graphics. Overall it's worth 5 dollars or less, I got about that much out of the game; If you like games like TTD, go for it, but don't really expect anything much.

If you're looking for an era based Railroad game or one with some depth, try Railroad tycoon 2 on here or download Open TTD.

The rerelease of Jowood's Railroad Pioneer is a welcome one, the itself is from 2003 and is still a lot of fun.
The gameplay is a mix of Transport Tycoon and Industry Gaint, with exploration and Train bonus upgrades.

But be aware of the freezing problems after the 4th mission, this was in the orginal version also.
there is a solution patch made by Jowood in the German version which could be applied to the US version
patch name: Railroad_Pioneer_Update_107UP.exe
I'm unsure if this is possible with the Steam version

Buy at own risk

I like the strategy and layout of this game, but even on a machine with multiple cores, plenty of RAM and a good graphics card, it consumes way too many resources, freezing more than it allows active play. That's a shame.
