[ 1.1   | Introduction ]
========================

   Hi! I am so addicted to this game that at moment I can't even stop playing 
to even write a short FAQ, but I am able to do an In-Depth guide on the most
important part of the game, the Trains! I hope it helps, I've even learn't a 
few things while writing it! Thanks!

[ 1.3   | Notes ]
=================

[1] Please don't email with questions, I do honestly try to add all relevate 
    details to the FAQ that I am aware of.
[2] Also don't email to findout can you host this FAQ, because the answer is 
    no, I write FAQs free of charge as a hobbey for Gamefaqs.com and do not 
    want to make a big job out of uploading my FAQs to 100 different sites, 
    most with no respect for my work or that of others in the way CJayC has.
[3] I have used the term "N.B." several times in this FAQ, it stands for "Nota
    Benae," which is a latin term commonly used in europe and by me meaning 
    "note this" or "attention."
[4] Enjoy!

==================
[ 2.1   | Basics ]
==================

[1] The first piece of advice I wish to share is that you should only add 
    carriages that are supplied by the station, otherwish you might have a 
    Uranium carriage on a train that goes from a cattle yard to a Meat Packing 
    Plant, not exactly the most finacialy clever decision you ever made!  
[2] When you are setting a train to go to certain destinations, you can (and
    probably should) set at what point it should leave, i.e. to leave at any
    point, half full, or full. Half full would make the most sense, because if
    you have half full train, and are waiting for it to become fully full 
    train, then the other cargos value will depreciate quickly, and if you 
    were running a train with no cargo, well you will obiviously make nothing!
    To set any of these settings, you must find a "traffic light" (don't ask) 
    beside the destinate and find the correct choice. The following is a list
    of the different choices:
         
                  Green light : Leave at any point
                  Yellow light: Leave at half full point
                  Red light   : Leave when fully full

[3] The weight of certain extra carriages can be to much for some of the older
    trains, so take this fully into consideration when adding carriages to 
    make sure you move more than 5mph (seriously).
[4] Make use of every carriage, if you think your train will not have a full 
    load often, then get ride of a carriage, not only is it cheaper, but it
    really doe's make your trains faster.
[5] On major routes I use 4 trains, 2 in each direction, one with 3 passenger 
    cars and 3 mail cars, and the other with things like cattle cars or milk
    etc., depending solely on the partciular route. For lesser routes 2 trains 
    will do, 1 in each direction, mixed with passenger cars, mail cars and 
    other cars.

==============================
[ 2.2   | Noteable Carriages ]
==============================

 Caboose
=========
   
   Decreases breakdowns by 25% and robberies by 75%.

 Dining Car
============

   Increases the passenger revenues of any train it is attached to by 20%. If 
there are no passenger revenues, the dining car generates no revenue. 
Additional dining cars beyond the first offer no extra revenue.

==================
[ 2.3   | Weight ]
==================

   The following is an indepth guide to the carriage weight and that sort of 
information, all the following weights are in tons:

[ 2.4   | Revenue ]
===================

   The following table has been worked out in percentage, it shows the value
of a certain cargo after a certain pariod. I used a stopwatch first to get 
the different game speeds, which are as follows...

1 = 43sec per month    5 =   5sec per month     9 = 1.0sec per month
2 = 22sec per month    6 =   4sec per month    10 = 0.6sec per month
3 = 12sec per month    7 =   2sec per month
4 =  7sec per month    8 = 1.2sec per month

...and then timed the train to carry the item from A to B, then found the 
percentage decline in value and found out how much its value declined after
100 days.

N.B. This table does not allow for adustments such as dining cars etc.
N.B. This is EXTREMELY incomplete due to the fact that it can take half an 
     hour just to get two figures, and then they have to be rechecked, I will
     hopefully have several more added in the next version.

   The following is a list identifing where you can get certain cargos and 
were they will be excepted.

N.B. By Demand I mean were it is excepted, it is used in the game.
N.B. Several items are excepted at the Ship Yard, but only lumber is solely
     reliant on it so it is only listed under lumber.
