I'm really confused with the red and blue spline dots. Which is the main one to be moved. I'm finding it difficult to create even the simplest strait road spline with up and down hills. The spline seems to take on a life of its own and also weaves from left to right like a snake. The old single dot system was so easy to manipulate.

Any help is appreciated.

red dot moves spline up and down, blue is right and left. but like you i too have a problem now, i can't get a simple curve on a flat road to work, all i'm getting is straight line from dot to dot, spline doesn't want to bend in a curve anymore.

Tony, you are wrong thinking that. The red dots are the guide ones for where the actual spline line, train/car, follows, so you move or ctrl B these to set the line of the spline, up, down, left or right. The blue dots are still not clear what they do, but I think they are helpers to get smooth curves and straight lines with correctly spaced red dots when you get them close together.
