My wife, a non-gamer, but who is willing to indulge my hobby got me Railroad Tycoon for Christmas -- the full English version. I had been thinking of getting Railways of the World with any extra Christmas money, but my wife surprised me. I know that RotW has changed the map (smaller and an additional New York connection), few rules and has new operations cards. What do I need to do to upgrade RrT? Or do I even need to bother?

Eagle/FRED is selling the newer maps individually:

But, by the time you buy those maps at $40 you're close to the going rate of $48 for Railways of the World.

Personally, I would put money towards Railways of England and Wales and Railways of Europe first (in that order). Both expansions are 100% compatible with RRT.

I'd say no need to bother, RRT on its own is just fine.

Get expansions like Europe or England down the road after you've played it multiple times.
