I'm interested in that aswell !
I seem to remember that the LW manual had a rollercoaster tutorial where the wheels were attached to the rails, I think that could be of help... I'd have to look it up though....

If you have version 9, there is a thing called Sticky. It will do exactly that. There is a tutorial on newtek's site...

Yeah! er... umm... I mean... um... Yeah!
