Actually, you want func_tracktrain if you want a train, or anything that will face the direction it is moving in. Unfortunately, func_tracktrain doesnt work in DoD.

Are you sure? If that entity doesn't work in DOD, then what's the entity that makes the train and "elevator" work in dod_ratten1 (a new rat map)?

There's a sort of "rat elevator" that goes horizontally along a track along the ceiling, and when it reaches one end of the track, it (vertically) lowers itself to the floor, waits, then goes back up, then (horizontally) moves along the track again.
Along the floor, there's a "toy" train that goes along a track.

Anyone know what entity moves those things?

EDIT: oh wait. nevermind.
