I have been watching that as well Douglas. Scratching my head…preferring to make long routes myself, or often in many cases I have to make long routes anyway to get said resource. One long route for wood…seemed to take forever to just get three cars full. Closer ones seem to develop faster?
Something else that may be on the same line is I have seen trains take off with say twenty passengers, only to have a couple passengers just vanish halfway through the trip. Guess my passenger service is so bad they are jumping trains in mid transit. 😛
