| Passengers are changing the transport vehicle
Passengers are changing the transport vehicle to reach their destination. A passenger will at most change the vehicle 30 times.
As example a passenger will use a bus to drive to a railway station where a train to his destination is waiting.
| Don't combine fast engines with speed limited waggons
Since Simutrans 0.82.8exp waggons have a speed limit. The lowest speed limit of any waggon in a convoi will limit the convois top speed.
That means that a convoi with a fast engine can be slowed down by it's waggons.
The waggons speed limits are shown in the depot window. Please change the user interface language to english if you don't see the speed limits)
| Electric engines can only drive on electified tracks
Electric engines can only drive on tracks with overhead lines. In the rail-tools menu you can find a tool to add overhead-lines to rails.
| Trains can have two front engines
You can buy a train with two front engines in the following way:
1. Buy the first engine
2. Buy a second engine (it will be displayed in the engines area)
3. Click on the second engine
4. Buy some waggons
- The power of the engines is summed up
- The max speed is taken from the first engine

| Where can I build signals?
You can build signals on bridges:
