Rerailing crane/tools
Hi, is or will there be anyway to rerail trains in the game?

Currently it seems only reloading a saved game helps but with all these wonderful cranes and bits of wood.. It maybe possible to fix minor derailments in the field

Whats the future on this?

Also im sure its been said before but the game would benefit greatly from multiplayer. One of the few train sims that would.. For brakeman, fireman, shunter. And crane drivers

Thanks again for a very unique sim

In the future i will add a extra heavy duty steam crane which can lift cars, engines and other logging equipment.

I agree multiplayer would be very cool and is definitely on the list. Currently i am focussing on adding more content for the player and to give a long term motivation. Once that is done it can be expanded with new features like multiplayer.

Thanks for your support!

Very welcome :)

An idea I had was wooden rerailing chocks, the locos already wood burning so decently solid bits of wood are easy to come by

Most derailments ive encountered is pointwork derailments with only the leading bogey derailing on the loco or wagon

Maybe some basic rerailing equiptment like a jack, rerailing ramp, chocks could be put on a purpose built flatcar that people have a choice of adding to the train

People may need to understand though you cant rerail everything with it and its down to situation
