Campaign Stats:

There are three separate campaigns in Second Century, each with it's own distinct gameplay.
War and Aftermath (1939-1950):
In the first chapter, World War II and the Aftermath, the goal is to effectively manage supply lines in different theaters of the Good War. Expect some intriguing scenarios with unusual victory conditions, such as freighting supplies to your comrades on the Russian front. The better you do, the longer they hold out. Do a poor job, and your rail lines will vanish as the Germans advance. During this chapter, you also help rebuild the postwar economies of the Soviet Union, West Germany, and Austria. The chapter concludes with the rise of communism and start of the Cold War. In fact, the final scenario is set in Berlin.
The Modern Era (1950-2005):
The Postwar Boom is next, taking you from the 1950s to the turn of the century. The world's economies are booming, but railroads are in decline, due to the loss of passenger revenue and the expense of replacing steam locomotives with diesel and electric engines. Withstand the change, and you'll get the chance to manage new passenger-friendly light-rail systems. Furthermore, you'll also get to play around with The Chunnel, which connects England and France, and even remove toxic wastes from Three Mile Island--while avoiding protestors.
The Future, Waterworld (2005-2042):
The last chapter, Geocore, could be subtitled Waterworld. The Mediterranean has been dammed and reclaimed. It's up to you to service this new region by train. Unfortunately, this technological marvel causes an environmental disaster of biblical proportions when the dam's Geocore power generator is attacked and destroyed by terrorists. Horrible global warming ensues, causing the polar ice caps to melt and flooding massive areas of the globe. As one of the world's industrial leaders, you must rebuild your rail empire from scratch and aid in the reconstruction of America and the world. Just be sure you lay some track near PopTop's offices, located on the beautiful new Bay of St. Louis!
