Playing through the fourth map of the Railroad Tycoon II campaign, on macOS, using the PlayOnMac Windows emulator. This map simulates the building of railways to service the gold rush, and is concerned primarily with the generation of personal wealth.
We played through this map several times trying to perfect our strategy. That which worked best for us was using capital, leverage and bonds to maximise shareholding early, Using 3 of four discrete lines between major centres to provide income, and using that income both to buy back equity and pay dividends to fund onward acquisition. This strategy came very close to securing gold completion – but not quite!
