Last Train Home healing methods

Medic's Healing Skill

The primary method of healing while out and about on missions will be to make use of the Medic's heal skill. This requires you to have a medic on your team who has access to a First Aid Kit when you head out. Click on the medic and choose the skill from the bottom right of the screen. Then click on your injured unit, and the Medic will slowly patch them up.

Medical Station

While out on a mission, you'll sometimes run into Medical Stations as you explore the local area and take over the enemy camps. Medical Stations can only be used by one untreated soldier. Select your unit and click on the Medical Station to heal up quickly.

Use Healing Items

The method is only available while your troops are on the train. You can use various healing items and food items and feed your injured soldiers to restore their HP. You can get a Kitchen Car that will prepare lots of delicious food items that can efficiently restore your unit's HP and morale.

Rest in Infantry Car

The Infantry Car that's meant for resting can also slowly recover your soldier's HP. Initially, the healing rate is quite slow at 1 HP unit per hour, but it can be increased with some upgrades. Keep it in mind, as it can allow you to save up on resources sometimes.

Rest in Hospital Car

While the Infantry Car makes for some makeshift healing, the Hospital Car is a specialized train Car that will heal units placed inside it much faster. They can even treat grave injuries and other serious injuries and illnesses a lot more quickly. Make sure to have Doctors that you can assign to the Hospital Car.

Pay a Doctor

The quickest but most expensive method of healing all your units is to find a village doctor. As you make your way across Siberia, you'll often stop at various villages. While some villages only allow you to trade or have drinks, you can sometimes run into Village Doctors. For a price, these doctors will treat all injuries and heal all units on your train.
