I'm merging this page with Rail Construction -- Sionide

Good idea, they are essentially the same. But both are outdated (at least the images are) --Dominik

I moved some small things of the content from Rail Construction to Railway Construction, made a redirect and changed all the links to the Railway page-- Pontiac


Question: I tried quickly one of the nightly builds and it seems that it is not possible to *cross* ELRails with normal rails. Is this planned for a future version of ELRails? --150.203.88.96 01:37, 31 March 2006 (CEST)

It is in the plans. --MeusH 08:14, 31 March 2006 (CEST)


The intro to this page says trains are the most profitable type of vehicle, yet when I've built 20 very good train routes, building two airports at 2000+ cities with two planes going between them makes very close to what all the trains make, with MUCH less effort. Maybe i should write this in the economy and balancing page instead :).


I've opened the english.lng. Does this information belong here, or in the articles discussing each individual tool? And would I be forgiven for applying {{Keypress|select}} to the rest of the article ?
