Transfer Car

The Transfer car is best described as a conveyor on a rail.

The conveyor can move along the rail, picking up and dropping off loads from and onto adjacent conveyors (stations).

Through the transfer car’s properties, you can assign any user created actionpoint as a pickup point or destination point.

When a load reaches a pickup point and it has its destination set to an actionpoint along the route of one of the destination stations.

The transfer car will move to the pickup point, transfer the load onto itself, move to the destination point and drop off the load.
