Guide to Sid Meier’s Railroads : How to Lay a Single Track in Sid Meier’s Railroads

August 14, 2019


DIXON GILLETTE: All right. To begin laying
single track, you’re going to want to start out at your city that you are over. Now, one
thing that’s important to keep in mind when laying track is you can only build track off
of existing track. You can’t just start track out in the middle of nowhere. To begin, you’re
going to want to select your Single Track icon here or push T on your keyboard. What
this will do is this will change your mouse pointer into your track selector. And when
you’re not over your track, you will see a red circle with an X there. That means you
cannot lay track at that other position. To change this into the green circle that you
want, you bring it over the edge of your track and as you can see are mouse pointer changed.
To begin laying the track, you’re going to left-click your mouse and simply drag your
track towards the direction that you want to build in. So we’re going to go over here
to the cornfields and build our track there. To actually build the track, you’re going
to left-click again. And as you can see, the track is actually built now. Now, as you could
see, if you keep dragging your mouse out you’re still in Track Laying mode. So you’re going
to want to exit your Track Laying mode by right-clicking on your mouse. Now, one thing
that’s important to keep in mind is that when you are laying track, you’re going to want
to make sure that you have brought your track all the way within the green circle of the
industry or city. If you don’t bring it within this transparent green circle, you’re going
to find that you won’t be able to build a depot there, so make sure that you always
bring it within the green circle. And those are the basics of laying single track.
