Enable the refitting of trains in depots


Configuration file: trainrefit

Command line: -f

Quick Info

The Train Refit switch allows you to refit certain locomotives to carry different cargoes. It replaces the "turn around" button of refittable trains stopped in depots with the "refit" button. Any locomotive that can carry cargo can be refit with this switch enabled. Refitting lasts until the locomotive is sold or refit again.

Detailed Info

Since a few of the train engines come with a passenger or mail compartment, they were not very useful for other types of cargo because the "Full Load" switch could not be used. This has changed now with the fullloadany switch, but even so, train refitting may still make sense.

By enabling Train Refitting, you can now refit those engines just like planes to carry whatever cargo you choose. Only mail and oil are not an option yet, just like with the planes. (This might change in the future).

If enabled, it replaces the "Reverse Train" button with a "Refit Train" button whenever the train window is opened while the train is in a depot, but only for those engines that really have a cargo capacity. For all others, there is no change. In order to reverse the direction of a train instead of refitting it, just open the window while the train is not in a depot, where the direction cannot be reversed anyway. The status of this button does not change until the window is closed and opened again, even if the train leaves the depot.

Refitting is permanent, and stays even after the option is disabled, until the engine is sold or refitted again.


From 2.0.1 alpha 12 the button should change as soon as the vehicle enters/leaves the depot, without having to close and open the window again

If the train contains vehicles from a new vehicle set, some additional considerations apply. Please see the refitting section of NewVehicleGraphics for more information.
