I have wagon type A for cargo M, N, O (allowed refiting). I am using M, N, O.

Later I have new wagons:
- B for cargo M, N
- C for cargo N, O.
- D for cargo O.

I want to replace wagons:
- A (M) to B
- A (N) to C
- A (O) to D

I must use this procedure with this order:
1. Replace A to D.
2. Wait for done.
3. Replace A to C.
4. Wait for done.
5. Replace A to B.
6. Wait for done.

Please add advanced replace form to replace wagons on cargo type base. Actual replace form replacing is on wagon name base. It is not enought and disarranged.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  This would add substantial UI complexity. Currently groups are the solution for this. Consist templates would provide an even better solution, but that is not currently a goal.

You can autoreplace within groups as well as globally (select the group before going to "manage list"), which sounds like it might be a good solution for what you're trying to do here.

It is partially solution. I have about 40 groups. :-(
