Steam-belching iron horses roar across the wild plains in Warfrog's first railway game. Age of Steam recreates the era of the pioneer US railroads building the track that transformed America's economy. The cutthroat action is centered on the industrial powerhouse of the growing nation - Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and beyond.

These challenges await you:

Can you finance both the most extensive track network and the most powerful locomotives?
Which routes will give the best returns on their costs?
Can you beat the opposition to the most lucrative shipments?
Will you make enough money to pay your aggressive creditors?
Competition is brutal, with the game usually going to the player who plans most carefully. Each self-contained phase in the game keeps players constantly involved in making vital decisions and interacting with other players.

The game system is based on the popular Early Railways System created by Martin Wallace for Winsome Games. The major change to that system is the addition of track tiles, allowing you to build your own routes. Age of Steam also allows towns to be developed into cities, ensuring that no two games are exactly the same.
