    Hi, I have been searching everything trying to find the weights of some of the freight wagons. Does anyone know where I could find or maybe put together this information? Thank you!

    Should be weight and dimensions on the side of the wagon, in the game itself.

    This isn't simulated in this simulator at the moment.

    Weight is simulated.

    From what I have read, SOME wagons have versions where there is a difference in the friction coefficient of a version marked "loaded" compared to the version marked "unloaded", but whether this applies to all wagons or freight on all routes I don't know.
    I believe that CSX specifically has been shown to have no difference to this even with the recent physics update, but I could have got that one wrong

    From what I understand, the game can only handle loaded or empty at one time/in one session. So before the service has loaded, it’ll choose the relevant tag i.e loaded or empty.

    It cannot currently change from empty to loaded or vice versa whilst in session, despite it visually changing, the weight stays the same.

    Maybe he meant the "weight and dimensions on the side of the wagon", as Rob 39 stated earlier?

    Where exactly on the wagon would I find this information. I have looked on the sides and a lot of times just found little scribbles that I took to be random numbers. When I filled a coke wagon the other day on TVL I feel like the weight change made a difference on how it drove.
