I’ll be happy to help! I’ve already started a small line near my house, south of spawn. I have a few traincraft trains, including railbuilders. There is a bug in the game that duplicates the traincraft cars when you break them. I’ll be doing a bug report about it.
I will be setting up a large tree farm and a series of coke ovens to produce creosote oil. Creosote is currently the bottleneck in my rail production.
