It is 1863 and the construction of the first transcontinental rail system has begun. This mechanized transportation network will take years to complete, but it will render obsolete the wagon trains of old, and revolutionize the economy of the West. Will you have the courage to build over the Rockies or through the Sierra Nevada? Will it be your railroad company hammering the ceremonial Golden Spike at Promontory Point? If you have the skill to successfully connect the East and West you will join the pantheon of historical railroad visionaries!
