    I am learning how to make trains, and followed the tutorial on TF2Maps, I think I did a step wrong as my car will not change direction from its original face outside the map.

    Ok well this is dumb, I cant add a file from my PC it has to have a link... Guess no screenshot..

    Track trains must be facing right when looking at them in the top-down view to have the intended orientation.

    Both of the models were facing right, it was facing left in the 3d view, but it was facing right in the top down view.

    Do your path_tracks have their orientation type set to "face direction of motion"?

    Originally yes, but changing both of them to "Face this path_track's angles" didnt affect it and the problem still persisted.

    The 3d view rotates. Saying that something is facing left is meaningless without additional context.

    Yes but it is still facing Right in the top down view. The models and the brush entities.

    You should upload your screenshot to imgur, and upload your VMF somewhere so we can take a look. We can't suggest any more without more information. Tracktrains and paths can be tricky to get working right.
