That's exactly the reason why when you put two trains on the same track facing each other, neither of them can move, provided that both are equally strong.   ;D

Jokes apart, when I was younger I used to imagine that, when walking, I was just moving the whole Earth with the immense power of my legs...

Edit:  @gauthier: now I see that I wasn't alone, thinking like that...

And, when you take train, in fact it's me moving the Earth under your train ;)

[r7218] Convoys move over ways, instead of ways moving under convoys.


The physics engine needs a serious overhaul before you release the RC, this bug has existed since at least the 100.0 series. Please fix immediately.
