QuoteSetting up freight lines is often confusing for beginners. Here are the rules that you have to check so your line can work:Considering two factories A and B, you want to transport goods from A to B.Conditions on the factories:_ A must be supplier of B (you see a link to B in the window of A and vice-versa)_ If your line has already worked in the past, check that B is not already full of the good you want to transport (in B's window, numbers x/_/y are displayed for this good with x > y)Conditions on player's line, assuming a direct connection between the two factories:_ Station A and B must accept goods (in a station's window, just under the field with the name of the station, you see the goods'logo. In pak64 and pak128, it looks like a small pile of dirt) You can make a station accept goods by adding any station building (platform/stop/extension like a warehouse/...) which accepts goods._ You have at least one convoy running (out of the depot) which can load the goods you want to transport (bulk vehicles for coal for example). The type of vehicles you have to use is specified in the factories'windows.If you have a indirect connection between the two factories, ensure that all stations on the way can accept goods and that each line can transport the goods just as explained above.

QuoteWait one last thing sorry, any way to put two trains on one platform?
QuoteTwo trains on one platform is not possible in standard.
Quote from: Vladki on July 12, 2016, 06:27:03 PMI think you can put two trains on one platform if you put a signal in the middle.
Quote*Should you use passenger aircraft? I do know you should not build lots of passenger aircraft but should you build a few?
Quote* If it's a 500+ distance away should you make it a cargo plane route?
Quote* Should you invest in a large depot? Example: A log train will bring in logs from a plantation to a cargo station, trucks will pick up the logs from the depot than bring them to a storage facility (multiple modern warehouses) than have trucks going from the warehouses to the facilities. Than have other trucks pick up the stuff those facilities produce and bring them to be depot. Example: Production trains: Coal, Logs ect. Bring in productiables, then mineral, grain, log trucks take it to the depot. Than more production vehicles will take them to those to the factories who need productiables: grain / coal / log. Then more trucks will take the things that the factories produced to the depot and then more trucks take it to the cargo station will this work?
QuoteThere's no specific rule, if you like them and if they can be profitable, build them. In pak128, they are balanced in such a way that they have to be almost full at every journey. If you achieve having some aircrafts always flying at full load (or almost full), you will get huge profit.
QuoteAlright one more question, that I currently have. So if you have a train station and a already developed city 100k+ people, should you build it in the city, destroy some buildings or outside of the city and have buses run into it? That brings me up to my next question will passengers take buses to the station even if the station coverage is away from the city? Sorry for all the questions I'm working on good train station layouts
QuoteSo if a mail truck stops at the mail station and it only goes to B -> C will it pick up the A mail
