    CSX is a really nice one, and this coal hauling bizz ..... but i am stuck; how do you get beyond this point?

    Going walkabout to find some trigger i noticed a bright red flasher at the front of the stuck loc; not in any manual ! What's this then?:

    Also: can this save game position be back-upped, so that i can revert to it later?

    PS think i found it; parking the loc, walk to the control tower, job ended probably, but the green Hub marker still hass 2.9 km to go ...

    The red flashing thing is a EOTD, End of Train Device. No worries it don't effect the train, just how the engineer and conductor help monitor their train. With the stuck issue, however, I can't help you there.

    sooo... if there's a marker 2.8 km... why not , you know, go to the marker? because apparently that's what the scenario wants you to do.

    PS. my guess is that you drive your train there, because it's too far to make you walk there.

    I'm pretty sure a red signal is holding them up.

    on the contrary. if you look at the first picture, the marker is showing to the right, meaning to go the other way from the signal. my GUESS is that upon arriving to the signal they want the train to back up, probably into another line that they prepared.

    I think in one of the services you have to switch the manual junction to get on the right track, the game is very particular about the location where you have to stop in order to move to the next objective.

    To check this out I always press 9 and follow the coloured track. I have had a lot of this stuff on Sandpatch and always feel like an idiot when on the wrong track again :)

    That makes since, that's probably why the EOT is on the former lead engine.

    Meanwhile (back at the station): walked the long walk to the banker locs, started them up, moved the whole darn coal train tihng back indeed a wee bit, and there seemed to be the end of this mess, but it still feels like Tomraiderish unfinished business. Dunno if it's over and done with. But CSX is a nice one anyway.

    ADDED: Up and down some track, and Job Complete .... i still dunno what i did LoL.
