Noxys Multidirectional Trains

Sneakily rotate locomotives that are being pulled backwards so that they actually help with acceleration instead of just being dead weight.

I've always found dual headed train systems more interesting than single headed trains but single headed systems have this neatness in that they don't drag around dead weight. With this mod duel headers are just as effective as single headers in acceleration!


  • Speedy dual header trains!


  • For multi-directional trains to work you need at least two locomotives facing opposite directions and the train schedule needs to be set to automatic. How many locomotives and in what arrangement is irrelevant.
  • If your trains are capable of stopping on intersections, merges or splits the act of rotating the train may cause them to disconnect. This can be easily avoided by placing your signals and stations correctly and therefore not allowing your trains to stop on intersections, merges or splits.
