Re: [jmriusers] Re: Operations Setting Up Turn Type Train
- FWIW, I can vouch for Dan's suggestion as that is what I do for my three
staging areas. In addition to facilitating an "out and in" turn, I get
better productivity out of my staging tracks.

- I could edit the manifest as a .csv file, but if I take a car out of the manifest how does the program know to leave it where it was previously? In RO, editing the manifest would automatically return a car to its original location if it were taken out of the train. Further, you could manually add a car, and RO would automatically handle it. I don't see how editing the .csv file can do this.

If you want to take a look at what the "Creators" do, look in Files>Operations. This is what I have done. It may not fit what you want but you can get at the "raw" data, if you can read a CSV type file. This is the point of my message. Once you can get the data, you can do about anything you can dream up. You could also easily convert this CSV file to a TXT file. Dan B created this capability for me and anyone that cares to use it. Just a thought. There are a few users (at least) using these "Creators". Again, it is not so much the "Creators" as the ability to manipulate the data.
