Are diagonal brakes possible?

Recommended Posts

A shoestring hack involves splitting off one car from the train and putting it on a seperate track, which is usually hidden underground. You can then use brakes and lifts on the hidden track to control the train on the main track. If you want brakes or a station platforms on diagonal or sloped track, this is the only option way to do it at the moment. However, in order for a shoestring hack to function correctly the two tracks have to be exactly the same length, otherwise the cars get out of sync, which makes this one of the most difficult hacks to make function correctly.

It's therefore quite common not to do it, and instead have diagonal track that is made to look like brakes with scenery, but doesn't actually slow the train.
