I bought this fantastic out-of-print game a few years back on eBay, and its great! (If you can find people willing to play it with you....)
Each person gets a railroad and you have to run freight back and forth along your network (which you can build by acquiring other roads). This is like Monopoly meets Risk on steriod for railroad history junkies. As usual, I think the Santa Fe (now BNSF Transcon) has the structural advantage, but I'm sure those who've won with Denver and Rio Grande Western, UP, SP or New York Central (or whatever) would disagree.
Is there anyone out there who still plays this?
