Description of Shortline Railroad

Shortline is an excellent beer-and-pretzel realtime railroad management game that eschews complicated financial aspects (as in A-Train) and all realistic factors in favor of the pure joy of creating a miniature railroad.

You goal is to assure an uninterrupted collision-free passage of different trains to target points, and your success both in traffic dispatch and railroad management and construction determines your score. It's a lot of fun, and quite addictive :)

You can give Shortline a name when you start it like this:
SL.exe "Bob"
Each time you use a new name you will start with $100,000 and Level 1.

You can't do anything at all when one train is almost at its destination and another one appears there. Also, game is quite slow.

This game keeps freaking out, no way to control it, then it crashes. I'm using Boxer.

Hi MARTIE, have you tried using DosBox? It's a DOS emulator. It should allow you to play this game in Dos.

As far as I remember, one has to delete RESULTS.TBL file to reset it into level 1.
