Engine Name Improvements
The Lionel Legacy Base stores engine names in UPPERCASE. This is fine for the CAB-2 remote. However, modern apps should NOT YELL AT THE USER. The initial High Rail Engine feature shipped leaving the engine names in UPPERCASE.
Starting with High Rail 2.2, engine names are automatically capitalized based on a few simple rules.
Before and After
High Rail Engine Name Improvements
|Imported Legacy Base Engine Name||Capitalized High Rail Engine Name|
|BURLINGTON NORTHERN SD40||Burlington Northern SD40|
|UNION PACIFIC SD40T-2||Union Pacific SD40T-2|
|NICKEL PLATE ROAD BERKSHIRE||Nickel Plate Road Berkshire|
|PRR GP7||PRR GP7|
|PENN CENTRAL GG1||Penn Central GG1|
|SANTA FE F3 PWR A||Santa Fe F3 PWR A|
|STATION SNDS CAR||Station SNDS Car|
There are some names that are difficult to correct. For example, “STATION SNDS CAR” becomes “Station SNDS Car”.
Additional improvements are inevitable in future releases. For now, this small change makes a big impact.
