[Suggestion] add rail handcars to allow survivors to move around the rail system
New, WishlistPublic


To make it interesting you could make it go quite slow with only one player powering it, but adding a second player could help you get up grades etc and go faster.

Awful lot of train cars on the tracks still, and it'll take a long LONG time to fill an engine with enough diesel to get things cleared. Just a thought.

But what about trains that block railway? For example, Svetlo station?

I think the disabled trains would make it more challenging. You don't get a clear run, or maybe you have to move a switch track lever to get around them. And in fact the switches could be part of the strategy, you come down a hill, and you don't know that some bandits have switched to the track to a waiting ambush. I think the main point of my suggestion is that are survivor-powered, and that cooperative play makes them more useful (cooperative either someone working switches or helping to pump the handcar).

I'll go and survey the tracks, but at a lot of stations in real life there are typically parallel tracks for shunting and so you could get around the trains that way.
