As an alternative, 0.17 is providing the ability to blueprint trains. Could train blueprints be given an added functionality whereby if you click a train blueprint with a schedule on an existing train it re-writes the schedule? Would hopefully be a reasonably simple change and with a tooltip it would likely be discovered naturally when you mouse-over an existing train with a train blueprint and it highlights the whole train and provides mouse-over text indicating it will replace the schedule. Means blueprints become your source of quickly rescheduling a bunch of trains. Maybe even give the ability to use blueprints on the train list to quick reassign trains.

That's not really better than having a train depot stashed somewhere on the map with one train per schedule and coping that around.

The benefit of schedules would be that when you change a schedule all the assigned trains change without you having to hunt them all down.

Batch modification train schedule

Post by SLB » Mon Feb 11, 2019 4:25 am

When you have hundreds of trains in a huge rail system
It’s very difficult to find a few of them and modify them.

Need some way to search for eligible trains. This will return a list of trains and then select some of them to add a station to their schedule.
