For #1, Train objects are designed so they fit onto track objects. You can use this command:
CODE
TrainObj setpos (getpos Track); TrainObj setdir (getdir Track)

To get a train to snap onto a piece of track, facing in the same direction as the piece of track, or:
CODE
TrainObj setpos (getpos Track); TrainObj setdir (getdir Track)+180

To get a train to snap onto a piece of track, facing in the opposite direction.

Of course, finding out the ingame name of a piece of track is an art in itself... you can use "show ID" to find the ID of a piece of track, then use
CODE
(getPos TrainObj) nearestObject TrackObjID

As a reference to the track. Where TrackobjID is the ID of the track object!
Or just plain use nearest Object, though that tends to act a bit funny it there's other stuff nearby: (should be fine in 99% of cases though, only if there's something on the track, or your train isn't positioned close enough to the track ingame)
CODE
nearestobject (getpos Train)


So, bringing it all together!
CODE
TrainObj setpos (getpos nearestobject (getpos Train)); TrainObj setdir (getdir nearestobject (getpos Train))

My computer's being a c*nt right now, so I can't test this ingame, but I think it'll work. You might need to adjust the height of the train afterwards though, I can't remeber...

As for #2, you'd need a special addon that hasn't been made to do that. My advice would be to think of another way to work the idea of a secret base into your mission.

I don't entirely follow what you're asking...?

The train objects should be found under empty->Objects, and the track is already in place on Chernarus, look for the red lines on the map.

Cleared your doublepost.

You'll need an addon for that. The trains in vanilla ArmA2 are just static objects unfortunately.

IIRC someone made a train addon a while back, though I can't remeber if it's still online, there might have been some legal issues with it...

Cleaned up triplepost! ohnoo.gif

Could be your browser doing something funny, or your mouse acting up, though the software should prevent that...
