Hi Bob -
I have been exercising TrainOps quite a bit this summer. On minor issue I’ve found is in the reporting portion of Run Trains. My diesels are prefixed with an alpha character as in M-10 and M-11. When the train orders print, looks like it is using an integer for the locomotive number because if either of the M units are assigned it prints Locomotive # 0.
And a question or two…
When I defined my railroad, I wasn’t thinking about FN3 stuff that can’t use R1 switches and defined my yards too large. I fixed that in the Physical Layout area by reducing the siding length to 72". Note that my cars are all configured as 18" and this siding will hold 4 cars. For some reason even if I Racalc Cars, the system wants to put 5 and 6 cars on this siding. Did I do something wrong, or miss a step?
Lastly, I have one industry that is only served by one train. It rarely gets any cars IN or OUT. It takes Flats IN (40%) and sends Boxes OUT (75%). I don’t have a lot of rolling stock, only two each flats and boxes and other locations take them as well. My Industry Car Orders report shows a lot iof demand for these car types that go unfilled. Could it be that I just don’t have enough cars?
