Actually, if you use the trains code available in the FTP site its just a
matter of naming the thing differently..:)

Incidentally, how would I make the trains (or the ship, or whatever) to
move only when certain commands are issued in the room, or when you enter
the room you are charged and it sets to sail in 3 hours, and it starts
sailing after two hourse.,.

Any ideas? I think it would be easier to modify the (kind of sloppy)
trains code..:)
