A Sandbox Western style boardgame is new to me. What random adventure/ sandbox style elements are in this game?

The game is called a sandbox game because you have a plethora of options at your disposal. You have a number of choices to make along your path to victory. Everyone is trying to become the most legendary character in the Wild West, but how you get there is 100% up to you. A lot of sandbox games carry a heavy pick up and deliver component. While there are a couple of pick up and delivery options, the game doesn’t center around them. Options open to you include playing poker at the saloon, robbing the bank and becoming Wanted, arresting Wanted players and becoming a Marshal, hunting bandits, buying items, prospecting for gold, rustling/wrangling cattle, and more. The world is completely open to you.

Quick run down of things to do in Western Legends:

1. Gamble--we have our own version of poker in the game
2. Buy/upgrade items
3. Complete personal goals--each character has 4, of which they will use 3 each game
4. Fight bandits
5. Rob the bank
6. Rob other players
7. Duel other players
8. Arrest Wanted players
9. Use special actions on poker cards, items, and characters
10. Mine for gold
11. Sell gold to the bank
12. Rustle/Wrangle cattle
13. Contribute to story cards
14. Revel at the cabaret
15. Heal up at the doc's office
16. Evade arrest from the Sheriff/Marshal players
17. Become a Marshal/Wanted player
18. Moving around the map

I'm sure I missed a couple, but even within these options (like playing a card for its action), there are other options.

Does the railroad play some part in the game?

Marshal delivers cattle here. And any player can work at any location for $10. We have some plans for the future for this though.
