Great game idea but written with a bunch of DLLs that date back many years. Causes very frustrating lock-ups every few minutes.
Would be wonderful if somebody re-compiled it with later OSs and Direct X versions in mind.

Wow....I bought this game for like 3 bucks just to see how crap it was going to be and it was actually pretty good. Still I would not recommend this too any one unless they like old games and trains.

I love this game so addictive for me once u know all the basics :)
Yeh I know about the crashes on the campaign so I usually play Single Missions which could last for hours of fun :)
I look forward for a RAILROAD PIONEER 2 hopefully :)

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.

Update:

After playing it again on Steam, ive noticed that the lag spikes are gone.
played for several hours and no problem.

If you like games like Locomotion,Railroad,OpenTTD you sure would like this one.



Original text:
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
