    • Place or modify a directional signal
    • Place or modify a stop signal
    • Remove all signals
  • Fixed an issue where in the Scenario 13 ‘Sitting on the Fence’ – Rheims was not demanding the required Weapons or Canned Food in some situations.
  • Fixed an issue with the last mission of the Balkan scenario where the framerate would drop when having the “Connect X train stations” task active.
  • Fixed an issue where the frame rate would drop when opening the track building, this was especially noticeable on the older generation consoles.
  • Fixed an issue where the customized maintenance limit value of the maintenance depot carried over to later campaign missions instead of resetting to the default 60%.
  • Fixed an issue where the competitor merger option was cheaper than buying shares first before merging companies. Direct Merger is now 25% more expensive than buying shares first.
  • Fixed an issue where competitors were still expanding when 100% of their shares were in possession of the player.
