This is one of the easier scenarios with 3 opponents so very little chance of someone buying you out. The goals are fairly straight forward and there's plenty of time.
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 is an 1870s era scenario so is a good opportunity to earn the "Train or Die" achievement for unlocking all of the trains.
Railway EmpireTrain or DieThe Train or Die achievement in Railway Empire worth 99 pointsUnlock all locomotives from the 1870s

The scenario starts on 1st Jan 1870 in St.Louis and the goals are:-

1871. Reach a population of 60,000 in Memphis. (These 3 are all fairly simple, connect and supply the named cities.)
1872. Reach a population of 50,000 in Nashville.
1873. Reach a population of 40,000 in Jackson.

1874. Deploy 40 trains at the same time. (You'll have far more than 40 trains working in next to no time.)
1876. Connect 600,000 people to your rail network. (Keep connecting to new cities and growing them all.)
1878. Achieve a quarterly profit of $4,000,000. (This was the last goal to complete for me. Keep an eye on your trains and correct any that are not turning a profit.)

1880. Own 20 industries and rural businesses. (Keep an eye on the cities and when they grow be ready to place easily serviced industries. Pick off the cheap rural businesses when they come up.)
1889. Buy Beatrix von Pomp's company. (You start the scenario with $2mil, I used half to buy up her shares when they were cheap and picked off the rest when I had spare cash.)

Bonus objectives.
1872. Transport a total of 10,000 packages. (This should come quite easily so long as you have lots of trains running nice short routes.)
1888. Put all of your competitors out of business. (I didn't get this far but it didn't drag my rating down too much.)

I completed this scenario at the end of first quarter 1876 which got me a presidential rating.
