Bill & Mike's Transport Tycoon Tips and Tricks


Loading Strategies


We use the following strategies for train loading:

For passenger trains, we don't usually enforce a maximum loading. We usually combine passenger and mail service, in a 2:1 ratio (2 passenger cars for each mail car). We don't want the train to be waiting for mail when it is full of passengers, so we don't set the "load" switch for passenger/mail trains.

We run "unit trains" for all commodities. With unit trains, setting the "load" switch has two beneficial effects:
  1. The train makes the maximum amount of money per trip
  2. The industry is encouraged to produce the maximum amount of the commodity being transported
Watch out for one thing when setting the "load" switch: Some locomotives carry passengers or mail. If you are pulling a coal train with such a locomotive, your train will never be fully loaded, because there are no passengers or mail at most coal mines!
