Played this decades ago for MANY hours of enjoyment. I downloaded and installed this and found it was the 1993 version NOT the 1990 version. I could not lay diagonal track even having tried the couple of suggestions below. I also found that accessing the menus was not as easy as when I played years ago. I sure would like to play the 1990 version again. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's a hint if you still have problems in laying tracks. Sometimes you have to turn num lock on and off a couple of times to be able to lay tracks.

Hello people, and many thanks to the DosBox creators. What a wonderful piece of work! Now, if you can only get 5 and a half inch drives to work on my motherboard, I have a lot of games I could go back and play ...
Anyways, I just recently downloaded the Railroad Tycoon Deluxe from 2k yesterday, and immediately ran into a problem trying to lay track diagonally. To make a long story short, you need to hit the cntrl-F1 key combo and bring up the keyboard mapper console. Don't click on anything, just hit the 'save' box and then exit. This will create a mapper.txt file in DosBox for the current session. If you don't do this, numlock will not work and you won't be able to use the number keypad on the right side of your keyboard at all for track laying, you will only be able to use the up-down and sideways arrow keys, i.e. only 90 degree track sections, which is tedious and costs a lot more as well.
I'm not a programmer, but I suspect it is a conflict of some sort with my joystick files, or the msinput directory in my startup sequence for Winblows. If I highlight the 'num' button in keymapper, and then the 'add' command button, it will only let me pick the 'mod 1' and hold' stuff, or by using the 'next feature toggles me into a dead end asking me to press a joystick button in red letters, which is why I'm guessing it's a conflict with by msinput that loads on booting; the only thing in the directory is my joystick driver, an MS Sidewinder Pro on a serial port.
If you get 'trapped' in the 'Add' sequence like I did above, simply exit DosBox and delete the mapper.txt file in the Dosbox directory, restart DosBox and repeat the keyboard mapper save and exit procedure outlined in the first paragraph and it will work again. I have to do that every time I start DosBox, though, and don't know why yet.
Anyways , I hope this helps somebody out, not just with Railroad Tycoon but similar problems with other games that be caused by the same issue.
Thanks again, people.

Cannot build tracks, shift and arrow keys does not work? Using DosBox 0.74 with Mac OSX, but DOS version of the game. Can anyone help? Thanks!

The game that first got me into strategy titles as a kid.
Wasted many a evening, weekend or holiday on this.

It's been a long time, but I remember with this game if you could so supermassively into the red before you got fired, the computer would glitch and roll that negative over into the positive.
