TRAINZ A New Era (TANE) SP3. List of Trainz Driver Commands. All commands are the Copyright of N3V Games

This page is always under construction. As new commands appear they will be added to this list. Only commands supplied with TANE or on the DLS are covered in this document. This document will be modified (or a separate document created) for TRS19 after it is officially released (the current release is a beta version).

The driver commands listed in this page are all found in Trainz Surveyor from the Edit Session option in the Main Menu and are accessed by the WikiLink.PNG Driver Command Rule and the WikiLink.PNG Driver Setup Rule.

See the Trainz Wiki Page WikiLink.PNG How to Use the Driver Setup Rule for more information on both rules.

Those commands that are identified as a DLS Command must be downloaded and installed from the Trainz DLS first.

Description Key:

  • <kuid number> is for the command version at the time of writing. This number will change if the command is updated.
  • DLS Command must be downloaded and installed from the DLS.
  • Base Command and Built-in Command are installed with TANE.
  • Obsolete Command is no longer required (explanation given).
  • Legacy Command has been replaced by another command (new command will be identified).

The main problem with using decoupling commands in the Driver Setup Rule is that the number and identity of the wagons in a consist may not be known when the command is added to a driver's command list.
