Hi, the problem is this:



why the window indicates 0 tons of loaded freight even if the train is fully loaded?!?

Sim version: 102.1 r2564

Might still be a pak-problem as this is the nuclear powerplant add-on.

But most likely cause is that the flasks don't weight anything (that is the good has been defined as having weight 0 per unit). In that case it sounds a bit stupid, but no harm is done (or intended...)

Did you check in the goods list that the actual weight is not set to zero?

This is caused by rounding errors. The weight of each vehicle is rounded to tons and since '500kg ~ 0 tons', the weight of the convoy isn't increased by the flasks.
