Thanks! That helped. When i added brakes on the track before the station it worked out fine. NL clearly is complicated, but I feel it's worth the steep learning curve, so I'll keep at it.
I have no idea why. I followed tutorials and exactly copied everything from the videos. I tried 9 times before giving up and turning to the forums for help. Basically, no matter what i try, the lift hill chain stops before reaching the top. This also happens on the coasters I made full circuit. Added a printscreen so maybe someone who knows what they are doing can see what I do wrong. It makes me crazy not being able to make a coaster that works at all.
