Cost to Build/Upgrade Silver Mine on Land
ContractsLocomotive & Special carriages used to complete the Contract.
I.e., Locomotive Costs + Costs for each Carriage attached determine Total Cost with respective, cumulative Revenues.
The Time required to complete each Contract is dependent on the Locomotive's Speed & Level of Route taken to Transport Silver to the City.
While a Locomotive's Efficiency may affect the Default Locomotive Costs below, Carriage Costs are consistent and remain set, regardless.

Hints and Tips
- Any contract can be speed up with Coal instead of Gold at 1:29:59 remaining and less. To maximize silver production, select the first contract over and over again and speed it up with Coal. To decrease the time, remember to upgrade the track. A stock Decapod with no upgrades and fully upgraded track can complete the first contract in 2:06:00. Hence, every 36 minutes you can complete a contract. With 3 special carriages, you can get a rate of 250 silver per minute. With 3 armored special carriages, you can get a rate of 500 silver per minute! This will drain your mine fast so be sure to have plenty of Engineers.
