Outside of the theme and the route/network building, the games are completely dissimilar. RRR is a worker placement game, while Trains is a deck builder. i always felt like Trains is Dominion with a map tacked on. In RRR, the map is central to play.

Railroad Revolution is not a worker placement game. There is no shared pool of actions you use workers or similar to claim and block others from using. It is a straightforward network building resource management and growth game with race elements because of the benefits of being first to a particular location.

Quite dissimilar from Trains, of course.

The Pool building comes from that you are building up a pool of different types of workers that do different special actions based on the main action you place them on.
