This is one of the easy scenarios made even easier by the fact that you have two opponents who both buy your stocks so neither can take over your business. The goals are all fairly easy and they give you plenty of time to complete them. This scenario is about transporting oil but the oil wells are revealed/discovered as the game progresses. However, using the "Flow of goods" tool you can see where the oil is and ensure you have track in the area. You need to move the oil to any of the export cities around the map. You start in Kansas City but Houston & Albuquerque are much closer to the oil fields so try and establish a station there.

To make this even easier switch to easy track laying at the start. You no longer need to worry about side tracks or signals. It takes a lot of the technical aspects out of the game and makes laying track child's play. The AI uses this method so why not join them on a level playing field.

This scenario starts on July 4th 1890 which gives you access to the 1890s trains so you can earn the "Railway to Hell" achievement during this scenario.

You're also going to be producing lots of oil so you'll also earn "Go with the flow".

The goals in this scenario are:
1892. Reach a population of 60,000 in Kansas City. (You've got 2.5 year to do this. Just bring the people what they need.)
1894. Connect 6 cities to your rail network. (4.5 years to do this, just spread south west and get connected.)
1898. Build a rail network with a total length of 4,156mi. (Plenty of time for this, just keep laying rails.)

1900. Transport 50 loads of Oil. (Chaplin Drill Hole to the north east of Amarilo is available from the start so lay track there and start exporting.)
1902. Produce 5 loads of oil per week. (You can do this with a single level 4 oil well that produces 5.5 loads per week or multiple lower level wells.)
1904. Achieve a quarterly revenue of $2,500,000 from freight. (Just keep putting more trains on. Not just oil but all freight.)

1906. Produce 20 loads of Oil per week. (You are going to need to wait for new oil wells to open, buy them and upgrade them. There are 5 of them and the maximum output is 8 loads per week so you need at own at least 3 of them.)
1909. Transport 1,000 loads of Oil. (Don't forget to connect to the other oil export cities, I used Houston in the east and Albuquerque in the west, they're much closer to the oil wells than Kansas City.)

1895. Connect 350,000 people to your rail network. (Optional task that you'll probably complete without effort.)
1905. Produce 50 loads of Petroleum. (Optional task. Before you can produce petrol you need to have a city demand petrol. That means getting a single city to a population of 115,000. I didn't manage this before the scenario ended.)

I'd completed this scenario at the end of 1897 which got me my presidential rating, even with the easy track laying selected.
