    Caboose passenger view

    It used to be when you had more than 1 caboose in the train, the passenger view defaulted to the rear-most instance. Now it appears when you hit the 5 key, the caboose passenger view defaults to the first instance (the forward-most) of multiple caboose passenger view definitions. You no longer are riding in the tail end caboose. Why the change?

    With Open Rails, you can cycle through all the passenger views in your consist. Going by memory here, but open F9, click on a car with a view in its wagon file, hit 5 and the camera should jump there. If I remembered wrong, the steps should be covered in the OR User Guide. Works too for Berenger Loco Works engines in your consist, which seem to always have "#5 views".

      When the multiple passenger viewpoint was added ( Manual Section 9.5 Multiple passenger viewpoints ) --- I believe that's when the viewpoint defaulted to position geepster posted about.

      I have added multiple passenger viewpoints to locomotives, especially switchers on both the front and rear decks. If the lead unit in a consist has a multiple viewpoint and the caboose on the rear --- also with multiple viewpoints --- the default beginning viewpoint is with the front deck on the lead locomotive.

      If there are multiple locomotives --- all with ORTS passenger viewpoints --- the Shift+5 will cycle through them, beginning with the lead locomotive and ending at the last ORTS viewpoint available --- before returning to the front most viewpoint in the consist.

      If there's a way to start at a different point in the chain of viewpoints, I do not know about it.
