moving load direction

Hi,

   I want to model a moving carriage on a mast, this carriage applies coupling moments on the mast legs. I assigned a vehicle with loads as couples in opposite direction.

when I applied the moving load, it is assigned in a plane perpendicular to the plane in interest. I tried to play with the Gamma angle in the Route parameters but it rotates the load only but not the plane of the vehicle as per attached  file.

I want the moving load to move in +Z direction, the vehicle is in XZ plane and the loads are in Y direction (all axis in Global dirctions)

so to make this work to the current model, I need to rotate the whole vehicle about the Z axis counterclock wize by 90 degress.

Thanks
