The great Railway Mania of 1844 to 1847 saw an extraordinary expansion in the British railway network. Huge numbers of private investors were encouraged to invest, but as with many such ventures, few of these enterprises proved profitable. The bubble truly burst in 1849 when accusations of fraud surfaced at the Eastern Counties Railway, then in bitter dispute with its rivals in East Anglia. The game is set in this cauldron of railway construction. Players will vie to start railway companies, invest money in railway shares, and attempt to run the railways they control for personal gain, trying to keep them afloat in changeable economic times.

The object of the game is to gain wealth by investing in railway companies, which then build railway networks to gain revenues for their shareholders.
