Cube Rails series
The CUBE RAILS family are train games that take an abstract approach to track building -- placing cubes into hex spaces on a board -- which eliminates issues of track junction tiles or drawing tracks. Games in the series typically involve railways connecting to cities to increase their value, but some include scoring attached to connections between railways.

John Bohrer's Chicago Express is an innovative new boardgame with no luck factor. Chicago Express was originally released in a limited format by Winsome Games as Wabash Cannonball and it was the first game in Winsome's Historic Railroads System.
In the game the B&O, C&O, Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads drive from the East Coast across the growing eastern US to Chicago. Smaller, more aggressive railroads like the Wabash spring up to further expand America's extensive railroads. The sharpest railroad executives vie for the maximum return on their investment in this business game lasting about one hour.
