The fluid wagon, also known as the rail tanker, is capable of transporting liquids by rail. Fluids can be pumped in and out of the wagon using a pump. Similar to cargo wagons, a locomotive is required to move the liquid wagon.

The fluid wagon can carry 25,000 units of fluid. It weighs the same of the regular cargo wagon but holds more fluid; a cargo wagon filled with barrels can carry 20,000 units of fluid.

Until version 0.16, the fluid wagon consists of three tanks which can be disconnected from each other to form three separate tanks holding 25k units of fluid each.

Troubleshooting

To get fluid into the fluid wagon, you need a train station with pumps.

The wagon needs to be aligned with the rail grid; do this by using the automated rail transportation train stops as train schedule destination, and a fueled locomotive.

Also make sure that the rails under the Fluid wagon are straight rails and not curved rails. The pumps will only work if the wagon is perfectly orthogonal to the grid.

History

  • 0.16.8:
    • Changed fluid wagon capacity from 75k to 25k (Same as storage tank).
    • Lowered fluid wagon weight from 3000 to 1000 (same as cargo wagon).
    • Changed fluid wagon recipe so it requires just 1 storage tank instead of 3.
  • 0.16.7:
    • Simplified to contain just 1 fluid instead of having 3 different fluid tanks
