      I need to set up a Route that runs from a yard to service 5 local industries in the same town. How should I set this up? The program tells me that it looks like a looped route. When I click the looped route box the program tells me that there has to be an intermediate town. What am I missing here? Thanks!

        Rick,

        This is basically the same as your previous question about moving cars from a yard to the exchange track. You want to go from the yard to a single location.

        The route is Yard A - Town B

        Define the train to run on the route and check the Up and Back box. When defining the train, use the Drop Cars or Don't Switch options for the industries you don't want to service in the town.

          David, I have a westbound train running from staging yard A to staging yard B and have it listed as train #1. It is listed as an "up & back" train. This runs from track 1 in one staging yard A to track 1 in staging yard B.


          Instead of listing this train just as train #1 up and back, can I list this two separate trains, not using the designation of "up & back." For example, can I call the W/B train #1 and the E/B train #2? Thanks.

            Rick,

            I had to think about this one :erm: Typically (for me) trains begin and/or end in staging. They don't go to staging and then immediately turn around and go back. That said, this is a perfectly permitted operation with the program.

            I my be misunderstanding what you are asking. If so, please let me know.

            If your train is going from Staging Yard A to Staging Yard B and then immediately turning around (NOT terminating in Staging Yard B)and going back to Staging Yard A, it must be an up and back train. You can name the train whatever you like as long as the name is 30 characters or less. You can name it #1/#2. In the remarks section of the train definition, you can put in: "Train runs as #1 west bound and runs as #2 east bound". This will be printed on the first page of the switchlist. You can add up to 256 characters in the remarks section.

            David

                David,

                Using the scenario above, if I have a train of coal leaving staging yard A, and classify that as an "up & back" train - when the train arrives at staging yard B, will the cars become emptys, then return to staging yard A, as empty's? Thanks.
