How can i make empty vehicles to move and park at a node?

Post by Juank85 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 3:16 pm

I am trying to recreate a train. I have three different sources creating 3 types of vehicles (locomotive1,well cars, locomotive2) based on a schedule. This entities go to a transfer node.
Once this vehicles are created and stored in the transfer node, i want to park each one into empty transfer nodes (5 nodes) so i can load them later with my container entities.
How can i do this? I cant get the set of 5 entities (locomotive1,3 wells and locomotive 2) to move to the transfer nodes i have placed in the model.

Thanks for the help.

Juan Carlos.

Have you looked at the simple train library here: http://www.simio.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... 4442#p4442

Maybe you can use it as is, but if not you can probably learn a few tricks from it.
