Today I wanted to show you a small video introducing the current state of trains in Rigs of Rods :-)You will see the trains do actually work (if you can't believe :P ), also switching tracks and loading other vehicles.Credits are in the video-description, thanks to everyone who contributed to this project.

All vehicles seen here are not final ;-)

    @tdev: I have uploaded a sekeleton view as well as beta files in the invited forums, basically nodes with 0 friction are used to hold the cars on the tracks, as for the locomotive there are wheels to propulse it.
    @Toctiz: It uses standart truck throttle for now, this is not trainz Maybe we will have something like this in the future.

    Excelent progress! I am a big fan of trains and I am astonished! I can imagine a long train route in the mountains of a RoR map. (btw I am working on a 20x20 km island with height reaching 2000 meters and I would love to add a train route to that I am so glad with your progress!)

    If you change the brake sound so that it changes volume(gain) based on speed it will sound better.

    Here is an example from one of my soundsources

    	trigger_source brake
    	gain_source	wheel_speed_kmph
    	gain_factors	0.0	0.025
    	sound unpitched Blazer_Skid.wav

    When this is released I want to make a version with a jet engine. And just set it loose on the map. Be cool to have actually rail crossings.

    That will be epic on Multiplayer
    And will be there level crossings?
