Product Description

In the 1830's, George Stephenson's marvelous new steam locomotive, Rocket, won the competition to pull traffic along the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, the world's first to carry passengers. The Industrial Revolution, with England as its crucible, was in full swing. New goods were being produced and transported to the expanding metropolises. Financial entrepreneurs, the new railway barons, grabbed the opportunity to develop the new railway network.

Stephenson's Rocket gives you the chance to become an early railway baron. You decide where to establish and develop railway lines, where to build your stations and in which industries to invest. Watch out for your competitors as they try to snatch the best routes and trade opportunities from under your nose. Time your play right, and you'll force your opponents to merge their railway lines with yours (to your advantage, of course). Relive the excitement of railway building in the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution - England!
