Summary

In a tragic accident, mechanical engineer Poul Nielsen and his best friend, civil engineer Jonathan Axelsen, are killed when a truck crashes into the coffee shop where they were hanging out. Suddenly, they find themselves transmigrated to a parallel world in the late 19th-century country of Avalonia. In this world, they'll need to work tirelessly to earn enough pennies to survive. But they won't settle for just getting by - they want to become the Edison, the Chrysler, the Rockefeller, the Carnegie, the Ford, and the Westinghouse of this new world.

In a world without electricity, Poul and Jonathan decide to start an electric power distribution company. But that's not enough - they also want to build appliances and motors to make their business profitable. They see the opportunity to revolutionize ground transportation, and they start an automotive manufacturing company. They tackle huge infrastructure projects such as metro stations, skyscrapers, bridges, tunnels, and dams by starting their own civil engineering firm. They even invest in the arms manufacturing industry.

But the road to success won't be easy. Fierce competition awaits them, as robber barons are willing to do everything to crush their competitors. Predator against predator, and government intervention. Poul and Jonathan must use all their engineering expertise and business acumen to navigate this treacherous landscape.

Join Poul and Jonathan on their journey to become the wealthiest men in the world in a parallel universe where anything is possible.

    Ch.48 the novel is essentially the engineering version of Past Life Returner. MCs are monsters in engineering rather than finance but it follows the same codes. I wasn't really hooked after the romance started. A novel that can be interesting to read but I recommend reading Pasr life returner if you don't know what to read.

    This novel is either one of the best or one of the worst on the site, there can't be an entry 2 with this kind of story. It's time to see if I've discovered a hidden gem or I'll be wasting my time.

        It is a grounded and somewhat realistic version of "technology system in modern world" Or a very boring version of "tyrany of steel"

      It's truly disappointing to see this novel that has so much potential and very interesting to be continued to die off and hasn't been update for an entire year already and I don't know how long we can hold on and maintain hope

        Well there is the "technology system in the modern world" That is updated every 2 days. Imo its also better.

        There are mech touch and mech building system. But they are rather boring imo.

    The author should think of something other than trucks, frankly. L'isekai type... otherwise it's a good novel, there's not too much technical detail, even if it is quite unrealistic, the speed at which devices are made. However, I'm a bit against the fact that they seem to appropriate the great inventions as their own. Electricity, the pneumatic brake and so on. The novel should still point out that they take credit for the inventions of great scientists from their home worlds. After all, at this stage of evolution (in 2024) "nothing is created, everything is transformed".

    Before starting, just wanna know if there would be a detailed explanation about each invention they make or just a brief info. Cuz too many technical terms aren't really my type while reading some slice-of-life.
