This mod is based off the original Automatic Train Builder Mod by cooky173 , this mod enables the use of modded trains.

I have tested with the following modded trains
- Factorio Extended/Factorio Extended Plus
-Nuclear Trains
-Electric Trains

If there are other trains mods that this does not work with please let me know.


Building the train creator chest and attach with red or green wire it to a rail signal, rail stop and constant combinator. The wires must physically go to the chest, being a part of the same network is not enough.

Set the constant combinator with the order you want locos/wagons built in. Each new loco request is swapped in direction from the previous locomotive request. If a chemical fuel (wood, coal, rocket fuel etc.) is also requested in the chest, it is evenly split between all locos.

Nothing is built until everything the requester chest has the minimum requirements.

Note that the signal linked to the chest is used as the first check that a train could be built in the NEXT section - so in order for the train to move off you will need to build another signal for normal travel.

If you are having trouble, please refer to the pictures for reference.

Please let me know if you run into bugs

0.5.1 - Fixed issue where trains would not be facing the correct direction and no-pathed, improved the way trains are being placed on the tracks
