(first time i use an image here, as there is no preview i hope it’s Ok)
Here is, of what i thought, a simple 3 track setup. Track 1 is a single track running from station A to 2 cities at the left of station A. 3 trains are running on track 1, no problems, all fine. Because another city, at the right of station A is a loooong way from station A i thought i’d setup a seperate 2 track line from station A to this other city, i.e. station B.
I removed the one track station A and placed a new two track station A. Established a two track line from A to B which comes together as a single track running into station A. I placed signals according to the drawing beneath ( right side driving, no one way signals ) . The situation now is as follows : one train is ‘waiting for path’ on track 2 as it tries to leave station A , another train is ‘waiting for path’ on track 3 at the most left signal…..
When i got stuck with this situation i didn’t have the four intermediate signals setup yet because i didn’t know that would be necessary if a line between 2 stations is very long. ( i know that stations have signals too) I read about it here so i hoped that would clear the situation but alas it didn’t . The two facing trains are still stuck ‘waiting for path’…
A simple setup like this should be possible, shouldn’t it ?….. What am i doing wrong ??…..
