    @Daniel15 You can use a controller, because the mod uses the key bindings of GTA

    Arrrh damn :( I thought this mod would allow the trains to be derailed with large vehicles on the tracks, or explosives, tanks... etc. But the only way is to get on the train as the driver, then take a corner too fast. I'm sure it's probably a limitation of GTA that won't allow the author to do that, but it did make me sad when I couldn't derail it causing massive devastating havoc ;)
    Works well, but disappointing (Probably Rockstar's fault).

    Normally it's a conflict with other mods. Uninstall the other mods and try again.

    There is no speed limit on the rail or do you mean the hud for derailment?

    @Franklin for life
    change SpeedForward or SpeedBackward to increase the speed,
    for example set the values to 100 (100 m/s = 360 km/h around 224 mph)
    for more information read the comments in the ini-file!
