Trip Time and CostsEdit
The trip time for an international train depends on the route chosen. When dispatching an international train, a player may choose one of the following.
- Standard Route - 4 hours; no extra cost
- Fast Route - 3 hours; costs 9
The "Cancel Train" option is available only for the first 10 minutes of the trip. After 10 minutes, this option no longer appears in the Trains screen, and the player receives credit for all appropriate achievements.
All international trains have a 10% tax on gold and materials. In other words, international trains deliver to recipients only 90% of what they carry.
An international train will arrive at a contractor's station two hours after being dispatched on a Standard Route, or one hour after being dispatched on a Fast Route.
An international train will wait in a contractor's station for one hour. If the player manually collects the train's load, the 10% tax is waived, and the contractor will receive 100% of what the train carries. After one hour, the train will charge the 10% tax, give the contractor 90% of the train's load, and depart the contractor's station.
