Railroad Tycoon 3

Distributed through Steam

Railroad Tycoon 3 features 25 scenarios challenging players to recreate magnificent feats of railroading history from around the world. Players can lay track (including tunnels and overpasses), pick from over 40 locomotives from early steams to modern bullets, choose to haul over 35 types of cargo in a dynamic economy, and participate in an advanced stock market.

The new 3-D engine takes the franchise to the next level, allowing smooth scaling from an 'eye in the sky' view of an entire continent down to super detailed close-up of a beautifully modeled train, building, or just the landscape.

Railroad Tycoon 3 also includes more multiplayer support than its predecessor, integrating an on-line chat and matchmaking service. To top everything off, the game's soundtrack features another installment of some of the best authentic blues, bluegrass, and Americana music around.

What works

Everything but not issues with recent development versions in "What does not work" section


What does not

There is currently a defect in Wine 1.1.29/1.1.30/1.1.31 causing issues with keyboard focus after mouse focus is restored. This can be worked around by setting a value in the registry which I've documented in

[Software\\Wine\\X11 Driver] "UseTakeFocus"="N"


What was not tested

Have played several campaigns but still working on completing the game.
