I own both Steam and RT . So, should I buy Railways of the World or not? What am I missing? Will the expansions for RotW work with the Steam or RT or do I need to get RotW for the expansions to work?

I realize that it is simply a matter of opinion as to which is the better game of these three - but would like to get some input before making a decision to buy or not (RotW and expansions).

Thanks ahead of time.

You don't need RotW if you have RRT, pretty much the same game. The expansions work just fine with it.

By not having railways of the world you are missing 2 things

A scoreboard for certain expansions. Which you can either overlay you RRT map or print a scoring alternative is which there are several here on BGG.

The second is the railways of Mexico map. Which is a good map for a low number of players. At one stage you could buy the Mexicoap seperately direct from eagle. But I don't know if this is still possible.

Otherwise the game is the same. Other than a Small rule change regarding track cost along water.
