Abandonware DOS title

The best trains games

Miniature trains were a very popular past-time (should we call them toys?) and/or a serious hobby for someone. It's not surprising that quite a few developers turned this past-time into video games. Trains, stations and railroads are featured in a broad variety of games: simulations, strategy, puzzle games. Railroad Tycoon by Sid Meier is perhaps the most popular DOS game featuring trains as the main theme.
