    I’m a bit confused about some of the trains like the Red Arrow that are a combined loco that can carry passengers. Are these intended to run as a single-unit train on their own, to have many of them running together as a single train, or to have carriages added?

    The red arrow is intended as a single unit but you can add carriages if you so desire (though it’s not very powerful so you can’t add too many without hitting performance significantly).

    You can also combine multiple Red Arrows, so they form one train.

    That too, although there’s not much point (it just reduces your frequency as far as I can remember). Perhaps useful if the line is super short.

    The red arrow is awesome. drop 2 of them on a line with a RE+6 passenger wagons and they will keep up the supply of passengers because of the low frequency. they wil make just enough money to keep themselves alive, but most of the money will come from the big train.

    Hmm. Never thought of using them like that to mess with the line frequency, that’s interesting. Good job they don’t calculate it as time per seat.

    + the Arrows will always take the passengers that have been waiting the longest, so there are very few suicides in your big train.
