I've a set up a system where trains drive according to a specific schedule.
For each train I've set the start date for that train.

If a train has a delay, I'd like to be able to let the train skip one order, but then without affecting the scheduled arrival/departure dates.

What currently happens is that when skipping an order, all scheduled arrival/departure dates are changed, and the delay of the train is not minimized at all.
This feature request is to change the behaviour as follows;
- skipping an order should not affect the scheduled arrival/departure dates
- at the next station, the train will arrive a bit early, causing the delay to be shortened or even disappear.

This way, the train will always drive according to the start dates I've set in the past (after carefully calculating the most optimal start date for each train)
This task depends upon
