The Plus account is a very good way to get a headstart. To get it, you have to use real money / credit card. You can win one day Plus account and gold in competions. The Plus account includes the Reseacher, Time Table and quick service tabs for all trains. It adds also a 5% interest on your bank account. Each subscribtion runs for 7days. The Starter package is a one-time purchase that fills your reseach bar immediately, level up the Laboratory, Engine House and Bank by one; gives two extra coal, grain and wood wagons. Your prestige has to be under 600 or this will not work, so no complaining if it does not work.
TIP: To prolong your minimum-prestige-condition for better use of your bonus package, do not collect your prestige medals at the trophy on the top right hand side of your screen.

Choose location for your head office
You can change the option that the game offers where to start your game. Many gamers that plays together, on one server choose to play again as the same team on a new server. Find the player or city you want to be with. When the game wont allow you to connect to a city, due to overcrowding, choose one next to it and lay tracks to it. After you had migrated to your initial city,of choice, change your headquarters in your Profile to your city you wish to be your home city.
