Feral Interactive Ltd

    • $12.99



Become history’s greatest rail baron in Sid Meier’s Railroads!, a classic of the tycoon genre now available for iPhone and iPad.

In this captivating mix of model train set and railway management simulator, lay tracks and optimise routes to establish lucrative networks of cities and industries, transporting passengers, raw materials and goods across continents.

Grow profits through efficiency, innovation, and shrewd business decisions as you acquire valuable patents, trade stocks, and build or buy industries. Compete with world leaders and industrial titans to achieve the ultimate goal — becoming the greatest railroad tycoon of the age!


Carefully lay tracks and design routes to transport freight and passengers, refining and improving operations until your railroad runs like clockwork.

Test your entrepreneurial mettle in a mix of historical and fictional scenarios, each with a distinctive map and unique objectives. Establish the first passenger line in 1830s Great Britain, stitch together the American West during the Gold Rush, or help Santa with the Christmas rush at the North Pole!

Take on world leaders and captains of industry. Grow your business by acquiring industries and railroad-revolutionising patents, or play the stock market and buy out the competition.

Play with historically important engines from early steam locomotives like Stephenson’s Planet, to the high-speed French TGV, and many iterations and innovations in between.

Take the pressure off in Train Table Mode. No competition, time limits, or financial constraints — just all you need to create a railroad that’s as fun to watch as it is satisfying to build.

Accurate Review

Someone wrote an inaccurate review. They mistakenly wrote that this game has minimal complexity. They must have been reviewing an earlier edition or a different game because this has all the complexity that the original Railroad Tycoon, which I owned in 1990. It’s a great game that requires building stations, laying tracks, finding resources, and connecting resources to different stations to earn greater revenue. You can play against 0 to 3 other AI players. It has multiple levels of complexity and 15 different scenarios. Now, whether the AI players are geniuses or not, I’m not sure, but that’s not been an issue. It’s still a fantastic game—very complex. Any review that says anything different is wrong.

Best Railroad Game Out There

So happy that Feral brought this to iPhone! Been waiting so long for this game to be portable so thanks so much for taking a great game and bringing to IPhone! Definitely recommend to all train enthusiasts and gamers! Wanted to ask a question to developers. I have all sounds effects up to the max, but the train whistles and any talking at the stations (like all aboard) I can barely hear, both of these were louder on the PC version. Is this something I can make louder? Or maybe a glitch that can be fixed? Thanks again!

Just like the old days

If you remember this from when it came out on PC, the port is faithful and plays just the same. The trains and maps look great and the interface is fine once you figure out where everything is. It’s a fun, well designed game, but if what you’re looking for is a model train set, be forewarned. There is a sandbox mode, but the main game involves a lot more than laying tracks, choosing engines, and routing cargo. Stock prices, patents, changing markets, and cutthroat competitors all must be managed. For me that business layer is too prominent and saps some of the joy out of running your railroad. But not enough to keep me from recommending this if the premise sounds appealing. A lot of train joy still shines through.
