Hi @Maíra A

This problem is being caused because the rail where the wagons are created is too short, that way the wagons get off the rail:

To solve this issue, you just need to increase the length of the rail and the wagons should work fine:

Hello @Lucas Klein!

Thank you for your answer. I did that and didn't work...Can you observe the issue?

Oh, I see.

In this case, when you increased the length of the rail, your RailControlPoint was moved together to the end of the rail:

So the wagons still be off the rail when created.

You need to move the RailControlPoint to a position where all wagons have rail underneath them to work, just like the picture below:
