A trick for this... supposing you have a box at the end of train and want to "move" it the to middle: duplicate any item at the position you want to "move" the box and swap the duplicated item by the box, then delete the box at the end.

Use the same trick to "move" a second locomotive (which doesn't have instructions) to the other (back) end of train: duplicate the last car, swap it by the same loco asset, and delete the second original loco. In RW2_Tools you can't control the direction the new loco ("moved") is facing, but having lucky it will be facing a driveable direction. You can drive this "moved" second loco in any type of scenario, but this works better only in freeroam scenarios, because the Player (lead) loco (that holding instructions in standart scenarios) can't be deleted, once its instructions will be deleted with she.

The new locking route stuff is annoying in TS2012, I got to run around it doing this: select the route you want, go to Editor then Scenario Editor and create a new freeroam scenario with any name like "0123", unlock and save, nothing else. Go back to Editor open the route to edit (after you've created that false unlocked scenario, now you can edit the route), unlock the padlock in the route and save, nothing else. Now you can edit the route or any scenario of that route. Some routes/scenarios can't be edited anyway (like those of HSC, or any career system scenario, once they are very well locked). At any time, delete that false scenario "0123", or your list of freeroam scenarios will grow fast!
