Class 73s are dual mode locomotives
« on: April 21, 2019, 12:43:43 PM »
Hi James, apologies for the bother again. However, the class 73s as in real life can run of diesel as well as the 750v DC third rail system. Could this be a simple little change imputed please?

This would require a major rewrite to accommodate locomotives that can use more than one source of power. It would be good to do this eventually (not least because of the increasing prominence of dual mode trains in modern railways), but, without substantial assistance, there are many years' worth of higher priority things to do first.

If anyone would like to code this, it would be a welcome feature.
