NeighborKid, This game is meant to be played as it is set out to do from what I have seen so far. What you are asking for is something a lot more complex. If this is the kind of game/simulator you are wanting, then I suggest you buy Trainsimulator 13 or the latest version TS14 due out shortly.
This game is built on similar lines to CIM & CIM2, but with the emphasis on railways to connect between various towns on the huge map, which will grow as the game progresses. A bit different than CIM, where you provide transport links just within a large city area.
It might be called Train Fever, but it is not meant to be a train simulator. Trains are just meant to transport passengers and goods from place to place and from industry to the towns and factories
