    Default Request Control Points Explaination

    I'm building the New Mexico Rail Runner route.

    I received an Employee Timetable PDF from them and it lists 17 control points along the 90+mile route.

    I know I can't have signals along a single section of track (corn field meetings).

    But looking at Google Maps/Earth some of the CPs are in the middle of single track sections and others at sidings.

    So my questions...
    How does the railway use these?
    Do I need to remove the single track ones and keep the ones at the sidings?
    How would I go about using them in TRS19?

    Thank you for your time,
    Joe

    You can have signals along single track now but you need to use the enhanced interlocking tower to control trains on it.

    Is "enhanced" different from a normal interlocking towers, I'm just starting to research and tinker with those.

    There are some more (better) features that the base ones have that will make things a lot easier to use.

    A "controlled point" is a remotely controlled signal. However, "control points" are almost literally that, a designated point which they use to control movement (usually by train order or bulletin order) that can be readily identified from the train; and can include things like mileposts, crossings, bridges, and stations.
