Roster Grouping allows you to allocate Roster Entries into different groups. If for example you run multiple layouts with different locomotives, you can allocate those locomotives to the relative group, thus when you select a roster group to work with, the drop down lists in the throttle or edit roster entries will only contain locomotives that are in that specific list.
When working with a Roster Group, some of the functions above change slightly.
- Create Roster Group
