I was playing Railroad Tycoon one day, taking in the glory of the hexes, when all of a sudden, it hit me. "I should play Axis and Allies on this board!" I think it'd work, use the cities' values for IPC income giving you the ability for more maneuvering. Has anyone tried this before? I'd really like to try this idea myself, but I've not got my copy of Railroad Tycoon with me.

I was thinking about you combining the two games - full out warfare while the trains keep on rollin'.

That's tempting too, you could build trains so your troops could get to the front lines faster.

Maybe you could have rolls to see if you get into enemy controlled areas safely and ways to sabotage track.

I was thinking more along the lines of being able to sabotage or capture your opponents railways, you could also use it to form a zone of supply of sorts.

I'm not a wargamer, but I've always wanted to get into the hobby. I might get one of my friends into it with this idea.
