New Update brings new and free Scenario, new features and more.

With the newly released patch 1.1.2 for Railway Empire, we are bringing several community requested features, improvements and bug fixes to the game.
Thanks to your continuous support, we are able to keep Railway Empire on the right track!

The patch contains the following content:

Love is in the air with the new free scenario for Railway Empire! Rhett Butler is trying to impress his beloved Scarlett O’Hara (who, as chance would have it, is also a successful railway tycoon), by delivering gifts to her respective whereabouts.
But are those truly hearts in his eyes, or are they dollar signs...?
