 While the trackworker is useful for rotating rails after they have been placed, don't forget that when laying tracks by hand you can still make curves by placing the rails at an angle. See the [[usage:​howto#​getting_started|tutorial]]. While the trackworker is useful for rotating rails after they have been placed, don't forget that when laying tracks by hand you can still make curves by placing the rails at an angle.

 This tool is used to help set nice names for passive components for the [[usage:​nodes:​atc_rail|LuaAutomation system]]. To use it, right-click on any passive component, and a box will appear in which you can enter a name for that passive component. Once you have set that name, you can then reference that position from Lua code as a string. This tool is used to help set nice names for passive components for the [[usage:​nodes:​atc_rail|LuaAutomation system]].
