The mountain railway: dig it, build it, climate!
The peaks of Snowdonia rise before you encased in mist, their summits barely visible. The highest is Snowdon (Wyddfa) herself at 1,085 meters. The year is 1894, and the Snowdon Mountain Tramroad and Hotels Company Limited has been formed to build a branch line from Llanberis to the summit. You can scarcely believe it's possible!
In Snowdonia, players represent companies providing labor for the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Unlike other train games you will have to excavate your way up the mountain-side, as well as make and lay track, construct viaducts and stations. All this in competition with the weather of the Welsh mountains and your fellow players. You'll be assisted by a train and can collect essential materials from the Stock Yard. You will obtain special work contracts that give you bonus points at the end of the game.
Can you contribute more than the other players to the magnificence of the Snowdon Mountain Railway?Contents:
