This mod allows you to define train routes, and assign trains to these routes.
When the route changes, the train-schedules of the trains following this route, will be synched.

First create an isolated train station (3 tracks, 1 station and the end), and give it a name, which has to start with 'Route: ', for example:
- "Route: Iron Ore from the Northern patches"

Now create a single locomotive, and put it at that station, create a typical route, like so:
- "Route: Iron Ore from the Northern patches" (this station has to be the first in the list)
- "Iron Ore patch 1 - Pickup"
- "Iron Ore patch 2 and 3 - Pickup"
- "Iron Ore Smelters - Dropoff"
This locomotive will never drive a mile, it is solely used to define your route.
When you change this route, all trains assigned to it will pick up this change within a few moments.

Now create (or pick) a locomotive that you want to assign to the route.
Clear its schedule (!), and pick the following station from the list:
- "Route: Iron Ore from the Northern patches"

The train will now follow this route.
To detach this train from the route, simply clear its schedule.
