I often see moving trains near my airlfield when taking off on a mission in a campaign. Haven't happened upon one on the other side of mud/front.

Has anyone spotted moving trains over enemy territory while flying in campaign mode?

Olham stops them during the day so his smuggling trains can cross the front at night! yep

MudWasp, could you specify what you mean with "the other side of the mud" and "enemy territory"?
That could be true for either side... wacky

I meant enemy trains traveling on emeny soil. For example; German trains when one is flying as a Brit or French trains when one is flying as a German.

Ah, now I think I get it - whatever side you fly on, you only see the trains on your side?
No trains, when you cross the lines? Is that right?

Well, I have seen a train on the enemy side while flying brit. It was some time ago so don't ask me where. It had no national markings on it. It was all black and was crossing no mans land. Hmmmm.

The train crossing no mans land might be Olham's secret smuggling train. yep

I can only manage things on the German side - Widowmaker, Lou and Corsaire care for the distribution west of the mud.
I send them Bratwurst, Belgian beer, chocolate, waffles and Schnaps and they send me single malt whisky, Sauternes,
Chablis, Bourgonge Rouge and special French cheeses from the Auvergne. If you want something, put it on the list,
and don't forget to put someting behind it, which you want to exchange for it.
Money is rather not interesting for us. readytoeat

I have seen trains moving in enemy territory while attacking rail yards. There may even be one on a video from the last challenge.


edit: It's this video right here:


At about :30 you can clearly see the plume from the enemy train leaving the station as I start my (not very impressive) attack run!

Aha. Olham's "Train de Cuisine" could explain an other strange Event I witnessed:
Right in the Middle of No Man's Land I saw a very long Convoy of Trucks. At a closer look it were indeed 2 separate Convoys - One Geman and one French, driving peacefully and relaxed between the Frontlines. You could only see that with TAC on.
Well, Trade is the Mother of all Things ;-)

Yep, we must use trucks, where the rails are destroyed, or where the High Command
has too big an eye on the railway traffic shedules.
