The Art of Timetabled rides

With ThirdRails Timetabled Rides you will have literally an unlimited number of scenarios at your disposal!

How does this work?

In just five steps:
1. Use Quick Drive, Freeroam or standard scenario
2. Create or load a timetable in your broadcast form
3. Open the ThirdRails GPS/Ebula device
4. Setup your train and drive
5. Forget TS tasks and HUD, use the timetable function on the EBuLa device to cycle through your tasks.

Announcements will be broadcasted to the radar on your tag, but for more fun activate the guard to speak it out.

That’s all!

Still not confident how to do this? Keep reading, otherwise have a nice ride!
