It appears to me that this new system may also be able to raise / lower the traincar on it's springs depending on its load (empty cars ride higher, loaded cars ride lower). Perhaps not for the initial implementation, but something to think about.

With respect to the track tags, we'd also need an offset tag, as many times, the joints are staggered:

maybe something like:


joint*spacing*left
{
kind value
type "float"
compulsory 0
default 18
}
joint*spacing*right
{
kind value
type "float"
compulsory 0
default 18
offset 9
}
