Author's Description: RailRunner is a game where you act as the 'overseer' for railway stations and trains on a small map - hence the alternative name 'Stinsen', which is the Swedish title of someone who manages trains.
On the track there are Stations (3-6) and Trains (2)
Stations generate cargos for other stations, and the trains pick them up and deliver them automatically, if they're at the right station to do so.
* Click switches on rail intersections to turn them, and decide directions for passing trains
* Turn stop-signs on/off by clicking, to decide which train to give precedence in crossings (and stuff like that)
* Click cargos at stations to hold/un-hold them - passing trains will not pick up a 'held' cargo
* Click cargos of trains to force drops at next station - so another passing train, with better route for that cargo, may pick it up later
When delivering cargos you will get money to add to your constantly dwindling cash supply - if your cash supply goes up to the Goal amount of the track, the track is completed, and you get to select the next track.
