OK, I let a few months go by and I did notice some steel appear at the terminal (7 tons). I went ahead and built another truck to pick up the steel, but by the time I put the truck on the road and sent it on its way to the terminal, the cargo was gone! I guess I acted too slow, and the cargo disappeared. I guess the management of the steel company was upset that no one was there to pick up the steel, and took it away?
My truck was just sitting there, and seemed to be jamming things up for the other trucks, which wanted to deliver coal or iron ore. So I built another terminal near the other one, with a section of road to it. I picked up my steel truck and put it back down so it would go to the new terminal. Now things weren't all jammed up.
However, my steel truck has been sitting there for about a year, empty, no steel. The other trucks keep delivering coal and iron, but no steel appears for delivery.
Is there any way for me to tell the steel mill, "Hey, I got a truck here to pick up steel. Feel free to go ahead and load some steel on the truck!!"??
I would check that the station accepts steel so when you click on the station name it will bring up small box that says the name of the station. In that you can see the catchment area of the station, so check that it is within 4 tiles of the steel works itself anyway.
Also check what it does i.e. Does it accept iron ore and coal to produce steel, etc?
