That is an entirely different issue.

If a train loses a path, it will try to find a new one. If, by any chance, finds one which requires a reversal, the train will reverse and if there is a train behind it, it will deadlock with eternal “waiting for new path” since its path is blocked by a train which did not lose its path.

This is annoying because reorganization of a major hub at one place may end up with a pile of deadlocked trains somewhere else.

I _think_, but haven’t checked yet, that this can be remedied by using a one-way signal at the entry of a long stretch of one-way trackage.
