This mod allows you to automatically call trains under conditions.
1- research the technology "Train Caller"
2- add the equipment "Train caller equipment" to your train
3- connect your train stop to signals : Each train station has an extra selection box (with a red frame), ensure to connect to this one and not the main one
4- Trains will be called, i.e. the train stop will be added to their schedule, if
- The train has the expected content or
- The train has the expected signal (Requires mod TrainSignalSender)
An option "Allow multiple calls" allows a train to be called several times in a row.
If deactivated, it can still receive stations in a hidden queue (to avoid that a station is never reached), but the selected train will first go to stations defined manually
Choice of train relies on two factors: (in order of priority)
- does it allow multiple calls (Higher priority if yes)
- How many times the train has already been called

TrainCaller can handle train-stops removed, trains removed, changes in signals or in train content

Have fun
