Hi Rob,

what about "moved to", "shifted to" or "repositioned to" ...

Thanks Jürgen,

but this thread is for native English speaking users.

Because you have a German Email Address, and assuming you are native German speaking, you can post suggestions here:

I think the British method of looping a loco from on end of a train is 'run round' though I confess that is a bit loose in interpretation. The North Americans may well have a different word or phrase.

Good tip:

This process is known as "running round a train".
I suggest to translate 'umsetzen' into 'run around'. ?
