Post  bharrison on Wed 20 Nov 2013, 12:34 pm

Hi all,

As An act writer of a few years now I should know this, but I can't remember.

Can you tow Static rakes in msts?

I mean can use a Static rake as part of a train.

Thank You Ben  A4PSmemberTSSH Footplate Crew

Hi Ben,

Like Roger I assume the answer is no - I've never tried it but I would imagine it is the same as hitting any other object - you pass straight through including level crossing gates and road traffic if they fail to open/stop in time!



To clarify, if a consist has been placed with the Route Editor the answer should be No
if placed as a loose consist with the Activity Editor the answer is Yes
an ai consist as a service can be under certain circumstances as in "Summer Relief" for The Somerset and Dorset Route.

Do you mean static or AI consists? Static consists you certainly can.
