Oh Dear..... Full screen adverts now seem to have broken it. Can't play anymore.

Run it in DOSBox. Everything works there. Download the preinstalled version. DOSBox is a bit of work, but if you read the help and info screens, you can do it. GL and enjoy this wonderful old game. I spent many happy hours with this back when. None of the later versions comes close IMO.

Shift S to build track not working

I loved this game in the past. Can't build track!!!! Why make an unusable game "accessible". Is anyone actually able to play this?

I really loved this game (in the long past) and have tried most everything. But track building (even on tutorial) just doesn't seem to work. I don't know if the "space" key isn't recognized any more. No other combination of keys and directions seems to make it work. The rest seems fine (ok, no idea how building trains, stations, signal towers, consists etc are) but....... this is a link to the "technical manual" from the old game.
Seems legit site without viruses.

Numeric keypad can work, just press 'ESC' key out, and use Numeric key , then go back.
