    Default Help please - Problem with TrainMakerUpperPlacer

    I select a train, press crt/f1, choose an available unit, press add unit to train - it appears in current train. press f12, place the camera between an empty track. Then press 'place train on track' and all I get is 'No node found'

    I have tried variations on this (different track positions etc) to no avail many times. Have searched the area but nothing found.
    I see mention of alt/f1. Is this used somewhere?

    I am using Needles, amtrak and lates run8

    Any help much appreciated

    When trying to place your train, use the shift+F12 function to drop down to the center of the right hand rail where you are trying to place your train. The following screen shot shows where you should be. Make sure the image from the center of the rail looks like a X. This will be the best place to place from. If you still get a no node found message, move forward or backward a few feet along the rail and try again.

    I hope this helps. Good luck.
