    very nice, does it have any problems staying on the track, i.e. doing some front flips when you turn the grav-gen on?

    No, everything works fine due to the landing gears on the track. Try it out for yourself.

    Never go in curves. Never regret. Love the idea!

    Thanks Jetelu. If there is a way to make curved tracks then I'd like to know how. Right now The only way I could make tracks change direction is if I made like a motorised turn-table for the track. Maybe in the future.

    no way to make curved tracks (I tried and failed several times when making basic thruster monorails) but the turn-tables seem like a viable way of doing it, although tedious

    Awesome train you got there! definitively want to see you build a complete station for it.

    About those curves, they are out of the question. no way you can make a smooth turn without breaking that train. You could however make a marshalling area for your trains to make some sort of curve.

    Excellent work! I love how you used doors as windows :thumb:

    Thanks guys. I'll carry on building more content and see where it goes. The track takes up a lot of blocks so it'll probably hit the limit soon. That's the only reservation I have.

    Added a couple more stations and more track to play with.

    Awesome train. However, your gravity field (used for pushing) is going to effect the passengers as well.

    As for turns, try using a rotor to create a turning block. The train would stop over the block, the block would turn, train goes on.

    You see this is why we can't have good things.

    That rock is driving a train.

    Also, you shouldn't have any gyros on that thing. The rail is directing the train and keeping it from going sideways. However with gyros you can still turn the thing and break it.

    As a guy who has built high speed rail weapons I can tell you that gyros are quite necessary in some situations as a stabilizer. Without them the vehicle will begin to drift and quickly do damage.

    This train is a solid design as far as I can tell from pictures.

    I said before about making turn-tables to redirect trains. Maybe I will make something like that in the future.

    There are a couple of gyros to keep it stable. Trust me they won't break it.
