I was really excited to see that they transformed one of my favorite games into a Hollywood movie. So I take Miss Panda to the multi-plex, grab some snacks and settle in to maybe finally discover the mystery of WHAT is being transported from city to city in the game. Miss Panda was excited because Felicity Huffman from her favorite show (Desperate Housewives) is headlining in TRANSAMERICA the movie. Miss Panda was also wondering WHAT is being transported in TRANSAMERICA.

The strangest thing being transported in this game is the Tourists. To think that all the many times I've played this game that I was probably transporting Tourists from Chicago to New Orleans (for $12 million) and from New York to San Francisco (for $33 million). All that time they were just waiting for their own game to be developed.

More strange Tourists travelling around England riding from London and Liverpool to Penzance (for L34 million). Maybe those riders from London became the "Pirates" of Penzance!
Rubber and Clay are also hauled around to possibly become some pretty strange "toys" but at least there's beer to drink while you're pondering all this.

Gotta wonder what those "Artifacts" in the Northern Territory are. Could they be Mummified "Members"?

OK, now you're riding in my territory taking souls of the damned to Hell. My favorite are the Blasphemers but the Sodomites probably came from TRANSAMERICA.

OK, we've come full circle in a new rail game where nothing is being delivered. Track is being laid from city to city and it's a challenge to find the best route but where's the loads?
My guess is that you're probably transporting Alan Moon groupies from the now defunct Games Project I who are talking a lot of hubajube.

In this game Jenna Jameson pulls a Train. No need to say what the load is.
