thank a lot
There really isn's an easy answer to this because success in hard mode relies on a little bit of luck and a lot of micromanagement.
Pick your map carefully. A flat map is best and make sure you have oil-fuel and farm-food chains close to at least two cities, three cities is better.
Try not to take out any loans and pay off the starting one as soon as you can without ruining your economy.
Beyond that the only advice I can give is to avoid trains until you have a steady cash flow and enough money the bank to build them without taking out a loan.
Use trucks but set up your lines carefully so that you can haul cargo in both directions. An empty truck is a truck that's losing money.
Set up bus lines to grow your cities but watch them carefully. They probably won't be profitable but make to make sure they aren't losing too much money.
Other than that, take it slow, gradually grow your empire, watch every line carefully, and replace your vehicles early.
And no ships or planes, they're basically useless in hard mode.
