Thread: How to switch tracks?

  1. #1

    Default How to switch tracks?

    How do I switch tracks? I think it is called ASPECT. It is indicated by a circuler series of dots in the upper right hand corner of the controls display.
    Thanks.

    Press "G" to change the switch ahead and "Shift" (plus) "G" to change the switch behind.

    F8 will bring up a small movable display window indicating the settings of the next switch ahead and behind the player train.

    Stop the train. Climb down from the cab. Walk over to the switch stand. Unlock the switch. Throw the lever. Walk back to the train. Climb into the cab. Start the train.

    Don't forget to lock the switch in its new position so the local kids don't start playing with it. If I recall correctly, forgetfulness was also a mark of the Good Ol' Days.

    LOL Neat animation. You must be really bored to go through all that just to answer someone's question.
