    Tiverton and Crewe Railway ( TCR for short ) is a new company, started in 1850, servicing, you guessed it, Tiverton and Crewe. Its main source of income is passanger and wood traffic.

    In the year 1856 its system comprised:

    The crux of engineering is the Tiverton Spiral Tunnel

    The year 1858 marks the start of the Grand Wood Line, to keep the Tiverton Forest happy. Three locomotives push a train through the torturous Tiverton Spiral Tunnel:

    And even then, the 15 car train barely reaches 20km/h at the summit.

    How profitable is this setup.

    By the look of it, is must have incurred a huge running expenses

    vinkandoi: I am playing with an early version of my Rasonable Balance Mod. The train on the screen costs about $220k per year. THe whole wood service yields aboyt 1.2M per year in income and about 500k in expenses.

    Anyhow:

    Year 1859 marks the completion of Battle Extension of the system:

    The next logical step is to extend the system to Newbury, but that will require a costly demolishion at Tiverton.
