About Trains (locomotive, wagon)

General ideas about new types:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1512 My observations from playing the game (Trains/wishlist) - very old, but quite interesting and actual
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2848 Enrichment of train-stuff, and other
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3309 Additions to the train system.
viewtopic.php?f=67&t=8973 Electric locomotives ☸
