Great game…BUT

I’ve been playing this game literally for years, and obviously I enjoy it or I couldn’t say that. I plan on continuing to play it but I do have a recommendation.
The only drawback to the game is a player can only progress in the game so far before the “end game” comes, forcing everyone to start over, losing all the progress that was made.
It’s time the game be upgraded to another level, in which a player can continue to grow and expand, adding more cities and stations and evolving. Maybe you could call it “Rail Nation: Dynasty”, taking the game from the beginning of the railroad into the 21st century.
The main point would be to allow those of us that are loyal to continue playing without having to constantly start over and over.

Thanks for your consideration.

Total Junk

Last month they released a brand new version of the rail nation app for iOS phones and one for Google play store. They took an app that had issues. They claimed the old app couldn’t be fixed anymore what they replaced it with is worse then what we had before. The app keeps crashing can’t make use of parking multiple trains at once which is one of the benefits of buying their plus account. When you set multiple schedules with the plus account the schedules don’t take for all your trains another advantage of the plus account so you don’t have to do each train separately. The game is no longer fun. If there was a way to give a zero star rating I would. They think they’ve made things better actually they’ve made it much worse.

Developer Response ,

Dear player, we would recommend that you both proceed to a fresh install (uninstall/reinstall) and remember to reboot your device afterwards. If this does not help to improve the situation, please contact our support team with your account and mobile/iOs info.

Great railroad strategy game

Similar to Railroad Tycoon which was an old PC favorite. What I very much like is it doesn’t take much time each day. It provides the occasional brief escape from a busy life, without being to addictive and demanding of time, like other strategy games. I also like playing in a semi accurate geographical and historical world where your knowledge can be applied, with some allowance for fantasy of course (Galileo Galilei was not employed in the rail industry in the 1800s).
