    Default Trains go through each other at crossing tracks

    Hi there,

    I laid out two tracks crossing each other, without switches. There seems to be no recognition of the crossing: when trains on both tracks approach the crossing at the same time, they calmly go through one another, as if they were ghost trains.
    Anyone has an idea of how to avoid that? Is it some specific way of creating the crossing? Is it some invisible track object?

    Thanks

    This will get you started. Others who do this a lot can add more. Presented for the concept only as there may be something newer or better.

    Also check out boat's <kuid2:76656:70002:6> ASB Crossover Trigger - Tane SP3/TRS19 and<kuid2:76656:70001:11> ASB Crossover Controller Tane SP3/TRS19

    With these you can set up each crossing as an independent self-contained automatic entity that works whenever a train comes along, whatever the source. No need to specify routes or anything. Settings save with the route but can be fiddled in creating the session, though that's not recommended.

    :B~)

    As you have TRS22 you can use the Enhanced Invisible Tower (EIT) and set up paths across the crossing.
