Driving trains manually is fun, but driving more than 2 without causing accidents can be quite taxing. It would help if trains can drive automatic. Then it can be fun to control a few by hand in between all the automated traffic. TC can handle all that.
There are several options for automated traffic:
– Auto Train by Drag and Drop (drive from A to B, with rules)
– Spontaneous Run (drive randomly, with rules)
– Auto Train Toolbar (drive from A,B,C to D,E,F, with rules and conditions)
– Schedules (a set of routes with rules and conditions and successors, very versatile and powerful!)
– Time Tables
This video is about Auto Train by Drag and Drop. It sends a train on a route from A to B. The route is protected. TC automatically controls speed and braking and it takes care of waiting for red signals on the way when the route ahead is not yet free. There also is a set of Rules that can be (de)selected to influence train behavior.
