how to draw a train?


tiles for the tracks?   vectors and arcs (center, radius, start and end points)?


what about movement along curves?  have to calculate progression along the arc?


and what about moving the cars? move the locomotive, then backsolve for the positions of the cars?


i don't need a super killer simulation, i just want to be able to bomb trains from my airship! <g>
