This is the forty-first puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Moos. In order to solve this puzzle, you must line up the train carriages as shown on the top tracks.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    All right, here's an example of a way in which this puzzle can be solved:

    First off, move the engine over to the left and couple it to the railcars. Then drag the railcars to the top section of the loop and leave them there. You need to uncouple from both railcars, so make sure you touch the blue railcar, not the red one.

Hint Two
    Continuing from Hint 1, move the engine all the way around and couple it up with the railcars again.

    Your engine should now be facing left, with the red railcar coupled to it and the blue railcar after that.

    If you've ended up with something different at this stage, you might be better off restarting the puzzle.

Hint Three
    Now your train has the correct order, but it's facing the wrong direction. You can move the train around the loop as many times as you like, but you won't be able to fix that.

    To change the direction, you'll have to make use of the junction control lever in the bottom right.

Super Hint
    Touching the junction control lever changes the way the tracks are connected. Try it out for yourself.

    Now then, combine this with the information from the previous hints and see if you can work out the rest.
