Railway Empire – Chapter 5 – Sierra Nevada Tips

Chapter 5 – Sierra Nevada Tips

Scenario: Well finally get to the second part of the first mission… finishing the intercontinental railway. This means going through a lot of mountains and this time you will be connecting from west to east… which is a lot harder. You will be playing against The Lady and The Engineer

1864 – Connect 4 cities to your rail network

1865 – Connect 8 rural businesses to your rail network

1866 – Achieve a quarterly profit of $600,000

 

This is a far more difficult opening objective because of artificial limits on where you can build. Finding 8 rural businesses that are providing in demand resources.

 

The best way to handle this is head for the $600,000 valuation. Try and connect business to Sacramento to bring up Sacramento’s population. In my go of this I connected San Francisco, Redding, Gold Beach and Los Angeles to Sacramento.

 

Luckily you only have to connect 8 rural businesses so worst comes to worst you just connect them and use them when they’re useful.

1866 – Reach a population of 50,000 in San Francisco

 

If you connect a beer route to San Francisco it will grow to 50,000 people. Building extra businesses into Sacremento that are in quick demand will help build up both San Francisco and Sacremento.

1867 – Reach a population of 100,000 in Sacremento

1868 – Build a rail network with a total length of 4,500 KM

1869 – Transport 50 passengers from San Francisco to Promotory Point without stopping

 

The biggest problem is space so make sure to have two stations down quickly. Move tracks appropriately and try and build as few bridges as possible. You will need to have all 16 entry points with stuff coming in to keep this place growing. If you build a museum it will make it that much easier.

 

Getting a route to Promotory Point is very expensive and will require going through multiple towns. Make sure you can get at least two lines running and set it to only Mail and Passengers until it is done. Transporting this many passengers is actually a lot slower than one would think.

1867 – Build a university in San Francisco

 

This is an achievement. Simply build San Fran up with as many routes as possible and you will unlock the option to build a university.

1868 = Establish an express connection between San Francisco and Los Angeles

 

This one is easy to get but can run into road blocks.

 

An express route is established by making a line that is very straight… with the fastest train… going the maximum possible speed. To accomplish this make a direct line, put in your fastest train, load it with your top staff who all like each other and use the Caboose. If you are struggling to get this even with this just look at your rail and try and correct any swivels in it until you get it.
