Only a single statement is needed in the body of the page, to define the location of the scene. That also means that the author has much more control over how the scene is placed on the page. Scenes can now be defined by several methods, including based on the size of a background image. The author can also put multiple scenes in a single page.
The current version provides a limited stop and go capability, including reversal. Any train that starts out at over 25 MPH, and then stops, will continue in the same direction after stopping. Otherwise it will return the direction from which it came. Future versions will allow more control over stop time and other movement parameters.
There's now a tutorial describing how to add animated scenes to your pages.
(thanks to Alex Stroshane and Chris Denbow for the rolling stock used in the demo on this page.)
