    Default Is there a way to add a switch to an existing scenario that was created by Dovetail

    I have a scenario that came with the game where you go to a station
    Then reverse your train to a siding and uncopule your cars
    Go forward back to the station.
    Change the points to go through a second siding. (here is the problem)

    In the scenario although there are muiltiple sidings,attached to the main line, the main line does nothhave a swtich to access the multiple sidiings. Since the scenariio has only manual switches I beleive this switch should be manual.

    I have copied the scenairo, but don't t know what icon to hit to add the switch.
    Do I have to delete that part of the track and put in a new track with a switch, or can I just add the swtich.

    Never really used the editor so the icons really don't tell me much. I have searched the internet, but have not come up with an answer yet.

    If your looking to just add a switch to the existing track work, you'll have to use the route editor. Find the route in the menu, click on it and then click on edit in the lower right corner of the menu. Once the editor loads you can then add/delete track or any other item in the route. Keep in mind adding/deleting track can affect the scenario. You may end up having to edit the scenario as well. Also, adding/deleting locomotives and roiling stock WILL affect the scenario. Adding/delating track markers will also affect the scenario. This link and the other tutorials by this guy are very good. Don't worry it that it's based on the 2106 version. It'll work for later and earlier versions of the game.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoUd...el=cActUsjUiCe

    This link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYc7...el=cActUsjUiCe will show you how to do a switch. On the left flyout menu, bottom left corner you'll see a switch icon. By clicking on it, you'll lay a manual switch. Unclick and you'll lay a remote switch. That other link I gave you .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoUd...el=cActUsjUiCe IS A MUST READ! That one gives the basics of track laying.
