Tips and Strategies
Here is a list of tips and strategies for North America. Feel free to add some of your own!
- Express, Standard, Zephyr, Rare, and Freighter trains work best here because of the (mostly) short lines of track in North America. Standard or Freighter trains should operate the long lines such as Lisbon-New York, Montreal-Goose Bay, Vancouver-Anchorage and Goose Bay-Nuuk.
- This continent, unlike most, is mixed with long and short lines. The short ones in the east should have Express and Zephyr trains, while the western lines are better for Standards or Freighters. Still, it's okay to have the fast trains with fuel cars in the west.
- As always, at different railroad junctions, make sure you have your stockyard capacities upgraded if needed!
- In North America, the ideal amount of cities railroads should have is 5-7 due to the large amount of cities here. The ideal amount of railroads
is 5 or 6. Use the number of cities in North America (32) for reference.
- the Libson-New York line costs a bit more than the lisence purchace, so just use the lines between Glassow and Montreal
