does anyone know if this is an expansion to the existing String Railway ? or is it a whole new game ?

from the description it sounds like it is String Railway + the cargo expansion boxed into one ?

I would be happy if this is a combination release. I never got a chance to get a copy of the original String Railway, and don't want to jump to the advanced (cargo) rules right away.

This is a follow-up game, not an expansion of the original String Railway. There may be some way to combine them, but the stations are different (i.e. they don't provide scoring) and there is no river. There may be some way to combine them, but I haven't thought hard about it.

Oh, this is totally something else. No way to play basic String Railway with this one (well, the strings are the same, so just print your own SR station tiles).

This one has a lot more meat, and much longer play time (15 minutes per player vs just 15 minutes).
