This mod allows the player to create a small locomotive on the fly by tapping <enter/leave vehicle> while standing on rails.
It is enabled by using a specific equipment, using energy from the power-armor.

It is a locomotive, which means

  • it can use schedules for automated driving to a destination (which can be stored per mod-setting)
  • it uses signals, and other trains recognize it as train
  • it can pull or push wagons (albeit slower than a regular locomotive)
  • it can be rotated by pressing <rotate> while nothing (or the locomotive) is selected

The following can be configured in the mod settings per player:

  • Keep schedule
    By default, the train schedule is reset every time the locomotive is created.
  • Keep temporary stops
    By default, temporary stops (in the stored schedule) are kept.
  • Home station
    When riding the motorcar and pressing H, the motorcar is sent to the Home station.
    When pressing Shift+H, the motorcar is sent to the previous position.

Remarks:

  • If other mods add locomotives they are also added as motor cars (with the same visuals and speed).
  • This mod works for multiplayer.
  • There are no incompatibilities with mayor mods.
