    Lightbulb Tutorial: Add a product of your own choice to a rail car

    Most content authors, including me, pre-configure our rail cars, passenger or freight, with a list of product queues that a user can quickly choose to either load or unload. What if you want to add a product queue to a rail car which is not on the pre-configured list? This tutorial will show you how to do that. For the purpose of this tutorial I am using TRS19 and the following built-in to TRS19 boxcar as shown:

    <kuid2:128368:480009:2> 50ft Boxcar UP 173002



    Also for the purpose of this tutorial I am going to use my <kuid2:439337:100473:2> Bread racked on Pallet product, which you can download from the DLS. Note: This version of the product is for TRS19.

    First go into Surveyor to edit the properties of this boxcar. Be sure to zoom in on it before going to the next step.

    Now click on the TRAINS tab. Now click the ? button as shown below:



    Now click on the box car and you will see a list of the existing product queues for that rail car. Now click the + icon as shown in the image below:



    A pop up product list will appear. Now scroll until you find Bread Rack on Pallet and click on it to select it. Now click the check mark button to finish the product selection process as shown below:



    The product should now show up in the box car. I configure the load to show 9 units of this product and click the check mark button to close this popup window. See this image below:



    If you have done everything right the Boxcar should now show up in Surveyor looking like this:



    Congratulations, you have now added a product of your own choice to this rail car!

    This mechanism works for almost any kind of rail car, passenger or freight, but the product must be compatible to that type rail car. Example: You cannot add a coal bulk load to a box car or passenger car.

    I hope this helps folks out there with this process.

    BTW I currently have over 288 products of all types, visible and non-visible, for TRS19 on the DLS. You can find these listed under the username of MSGSapper. FYI 99% of these are build 4.6 items and have been tested and work well with TRS19.

    Nice tutorial, but correct me if I am wrong: Isn't this how it works in every version of Trainz? Or at least since TS12?

    Yes, but seeing how I am working in TRS19, and don't have the old versions, I am playing it safe here and calling this a TRS19 tutorial.

    That would be since interactive industries were introduced in TRS2004 SP2. Wow that would be January 2004. How time flies!

    Hi Bob --

    It can also be done "on the run" in Driver. This video:



    Note, however, that in TRS19 SP1 Edit Trainz is now hidden in one of the menus at the top left of the screen.
