Thread: Path Rule in T:ANE

    Exclamation Path Rule in T:ANE

    Hello friends,

    I´m playing trainz about 10 years and I used mutton´s Path rule. But in TANE few errors occured.

    What can be problem ? Please.

    Roland Sura.

    Interlocking towers is the new path selection tool. Enhanced Interlocking Tower by Pguy is the replacement for the old path rule.

    Interlocking towers has many mistakes... I dont like it because signal which is END for one path cannot be START for another path and more and more

    I don't believe that is the case with pguy's Enhanced Interlocking Towers.

    As paulper has said use the Enhanced Interlocking Tower by Pguy. I have this set to run through several signal blocks where the last signal is also the first signal.

    Ok... I will try it. Thanks guys... is there an option that if I have one path activated other paths from opposite side can be blocked?

    Situation what I have on mind... its also called bidirectional track signalling...

    The path will only allow the controlling train on the path. In the case of paths crossing you can add external objects like signals to stop trains from crossing until the path is clear.

    Not crossint.... I mean opposite side... for example... train A go from station A to station B.... train B go from station B to station A.... inetrstation track is about 5 kilometers and divided into 4 pieces by signals in both directions... i need when train A has path train B must have blocked path too... but interlocking towers sets both paths simultaneously for both trains .... train A and B meets together between stations.... I need prevent this situation.... BUT signals I have 100 % good because regulation of Slovak railways... i try to find video animation if you dont understand me...

    Hi RolandSura

    If one tower controls both ends of the single line section then it will have two paths, A to B and B to A. Only one path can be active at a time so it should prevent trains entering from both ends at once.

    If you set the path up so that it isn't cleared until the train has completed the whole path then the situation that you describe shouldn't happen. I believe that is the default setup for the EITs.

    Regards

    Thanks for your reply...but you dont understand me ... I need something like this... if there is no train between 2 stations, you can go... if there is a train between 2 stations which has the same direction like we do - we can follow him to a next station ... BUT If there is a train between 2 stations (or 2 or more trains) which has opposite direction (facing towards us) we need to WAIT until the track between stations is clear ...

    Hmmmm

    You can set up a Track Circuit Block between the two points (stations in your example). The EIT configuration includes options for checking the TCB. When checked, if there is a train within the TCB the requested path will be denied until the TCB becomes clear.

    Hi RolandSura.
    Currently neither ITs or EITs supports what you are asking for. When a path is granted for a train, the train has exclusive ownership of this path and no other train can be granted the same path or any other conflicting path before the initial path is released.
    Adding path sharing for several trains following each other in the same direction is something that can be looked at for EITs but will need many changes in the underlying script code and is certainly a long term enhancement.

    But may I observe that Mutton's path rule or Brumfondel's path rule did not also support path sharing ...

    Regards.

    Hi. That is not exact : Interlocking towers supports that a path exit signal is also an entry signal for another path as long as both paths belong to the same tower. EITs does not have this restriction and accepts that a path exit signal can be an entry signal for another path in the same or another tower.

    regards.

    Hi again

    What you want to do can be done by using two variables, one to indicate when the section is occupied and the other to indicate the direction of travel. You will also need the following conditional driver commands, all by trev999 and on the DLS.

    Insert Buff Label kuid:160293:101002
    Set S-Variable kuid2:160293:101005:5
    Wait Until S-variable V3 kuid2:160293:101006:3
    Skip if session-variable kuid2:160293:101014:3
    Jump to Label kuid2:160293:101003:2

    The Input Table rule, which is built in, needs to be added to the session.

    If you look at the description for these rules and commands in CM they explain how to use them.

    If this is of interest to you, PM me your email address and I'll put together a short demo route and session to illustrate how it all goes together.

    Regards

    Brian
