Some missions lower the friction of train tracks for non-trains for their entire duration.

If you load a save or start a new game, then the friction stays.

missions:
- Wrong Side of The Tracks (until killing every Vago) (30% friction)
- Snail Trail (40%)
- End Of The Line 3 (30%)

The strat is: Save before Snail Trail(I call it the "pre-ST save"). After Snail, save(post-ST save), load the pre-ST save and start the mission, then load the post-ST save and enjoy nice track friction until End of the Line.

The tracks on the way to Export might make it worth it.
It is a must-use for non-LP ILs.
