From the description it sounds a bit more like the old Railroad Tycoon game, rather than a true dispatcher simulator like Signal Computer's Train Dispatcher. Could still be fun, I enjoyed the old RR Tycoon although I am more into the true train dispatching aspects.
Agreed. For me the best feature of Train Dispatcher, beyond being a true dispatching system, is the associated Track Builder App which enables one to build ones own layout. I had built some complex layouts including on of the area of NEC between Newark and New York Penn with all the additional new hypothetical connections like the Bergen Loop at Secaucus etc. and with the additional trains including the Scranton Service and MOM. It is still sitting in my archives somewhere and I still have Train Dispatcher and Track Builder on my machine, but have not played with it for wuite a while. Maybe it is time to dust it off again.

For me also the fun in TD is building new layouts. I recently completed Dublin to Galway Ireland and Amtrak /CTRail Springfield line, the latter is fun to run as it doesn't have too many trains to be overwhelming. The Ireland one is challenging as I also added the commuter runs plus the other intercity trains that operate out of Heuston.

I started working on London Underground's Metropolitan Line from Baker Street to Amersham/Chesham but the number of trains to be added is daunting so it is on the back burner for now (plus I got into Flight Simulator X which doesn't help).
