Distant signal
« am: 09. Februar 2019, 16:15:58 »
Hi.

I have a small problem…:
Say I have 3 routes in a tour, named A, B and C.  Train starts running in A.  Before entering B there is a signal for B combined with a distant-signal for C.  Activating B from within A is no problem, so the signal will correctly show red or green.  But how can I also activate C from A, so that the distant signal will show correctly if C is available or not, when my train is still in A?

I have tried many things, but never found a solution that is good enough. Maybe I don't see the forest for all the trees…? Any help/ideas?

Regards,
Per.

Per, try the dispatcher with conditions.
I don't know your signaling system, I suppose you use the Norwegian, but even though I have no idea about the rules of that system.
Anyway, I use the PKP signals. I divided the signal plate into two sections. The lower section shows the speed limit at current signal, and the upper at the next signal. The two sections under WDP are represented by two separate accessories. Activated route changes the lower section of the signal, the upper follows the dispatcher.

Hello  Andrzej!

Thank you for your answer! 

Well, the problem is not the signals (the electronics for them are home-made, and work perfectly).  Yes, I use the Norwegian signalling system, and it works like in the real world :) The problem is how to actually activate route C when the train is still in route A.  If the route is activated, the distant signal will show correctly.

I tried several things via the dispatcher, I can activate the distant signal, but not the route C.  And when route C not is activated, there is a (big!) chance that another train also will enter that route (which is not good, hehe).

Any more ideas?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
Per.

Hello Per,

did I understand correctly that you have the routes A,B,C and that another train could ride D,C? You want to prevent that the other train will enter C when there's a train in A? In this case use a virtual solenoid that you set to red if there's a train in A. The train in D checks the solenoid and doesn't start on red.
Viele Grüße,
Stefan

Hello Stefan!

It is correct that I do not want D to enter C while there is a train running from A via B to C.  I can do it like you suggest (I did a setup like this before :) ) but it would be much easier if I could somehow activate the C (like I can with B) from A when the train is still in A.  Can I do this?

Best regards,
Per.

Hello Stefan.

I sent you a Message 5 days ago, but I may have sent it to a wrong adress…  Anyway, do you mean that there is a change in 2018.1....  that will be helpful in my case?  If so, when do you expect 2018.1 to be available? 

I want to put this into my layout as soon as possible :)

Best regards,
Per.

Hello Per,


sorry, I was very busy the last days. Please keep in mind that I'm doing this in my leisure time for free. Yes there is a new feature in the 2018.1 that will solve your problem. I don't know when the update will be available, it's not finished yet.

Hello!

OK, fine!  Then I will wait for that release.  I tried many other solutions, but none were really good enough..

Thank you!

Hello Stefan.

In German forum, I found a Message about the New 2018.1 being available.  I read the file With update-info.  I think the function I wanted, is available, but my german is not good enough, I am sorry, so I did not understand how to activate the route C from within route A.  Can you help me?

Best regards,
Per.

Hello Per,

unfortunatelly this new feature - the priority control (German "Vorrangssteuerung"/ short VS) - is not available yet. Markus will fix that. Beginning tomorrow there is the biggest modelling fare worldwide in Dortmund. That means that you have to wait a bit because Markus hasn't got time right now to fix it.

Stefan

Hi Markus!

As much as I really DO want this function, I do not want to keep you away from your bed :)  Make sure you have enough sleep, that is more important :)  For sure, I am happy to wait :)

Have a nice sunday!
