Rail Nation – Origin Journey

Pack your bags and join us on a journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland, from the North Sea to the Alps.
We’re delighted to introduce you to our new map, Rail Nation – Origin Journey!

This new map is fundamentally different from all three of our scenarios, as Rail Nation – Origin Journey will only be available for a limited time only and exclusively as an event scenario! Multiple regional and international servers will start in May and run their course through to the grand finale. Be part of it!

But what exactly is Rail Nation – Origin Journey?

Our new map sends you on a journey across the German-speaking part of Europe. The map relates to the origins of Rail Nation in two different ways. Firstly, it’s the home of the development studio where Rail Nation’s story began. And secondly, with respect to the game mechanics, it goes back to the roots that are the Classic scenario, which in all our surveys has always been your absolute favourite. Rail Nation – Origin Journey contains all the familiar features of the Classic scenario. Research engines, expand your railway network and help your city grow into a megacity.
Of course, not all will be exactly the same, there are plenty of new features as well.


50 cities, 3 countries, 1 map

From the Baltic Sea to the Alps, and from Berlin to Geneva. 50 realistic German, Austrian and Swiss cities are at the heart of the new scenario. All cities also have their very own authentic landmark. Hop on board and visit them all!

Famous cars, exquisite watches and delicious cake – supply 11 new regional goods

For the first time ever in the history of Rail Nation, local goods have been added to the game. Players can now supply cities with 11 new, traditional and authentic goods – from Swiss cheese and German beer to leather pants from Austria. Industrial dyes, chocolate and, for the first time, water are now all part of the new range of goods.
Plus, there will naturally be new workers to match these goods.

Complete the journey

Every player who actively plays all Rail Nation scenarios will receive new achievements. The journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland will also be rewarded with career points.

If you’d like to get all four achievements for playing all maps, please keep in mind that Rail Nation – Origin Journey will be available for a limited time only. Watch this space!


Experience the new map design – modern, bright and full of colour!

Rail Nation – Origin Journey not only offers you beautiful landmarks but also some graphical updates like new trees, rivers, more visible bridges and routes, additional landscape objects and more. In addition to the 50 landmarks, 250 new map elements await you!


Everybody in our development team is looking forward to beginning the journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland together with you!
See you in Rail Nation – Origin Journey,

Your RN Team







Do landmarks work like in Steam over Europe?

Nope. The landmarks on this map are simply eye-candy only. Rail Nation – Origin Journey is played just like the Classic scenario.


What are the new goods?

They are: water, milk, cheese, chocolate, beer, cake, leather trousers, wristwatches, paint, mobile phones and garden gnomes. On top of that, we have given some older goods new icons.


Does it cost something to play on the new map?

No, the map will be available for all players and free of charge.


Will there be pre-registration for or on the Rail Nation – Origin Journey server?

Nope. The server will only run once and will not restart. For this reason, there will be no pre-registration.


Is the career engine available on this map?



Is it possible to purchase and transfer Gold?

Yeah! Buying Gold is possible and any Gold left over after the end of the event scenario will then be available on any server of the same domain. Transferring Gold from servers of the same domain to the Rail Nation – Origin Journey server is also possible.
