I can assure it is possible to have approach control, it is implemented into SWL, and many others have also managed to implement itFreightliners, oil tanks, speedlink freights, ballast trains.
It's just a shame MSTS doesn't support approach control, but no doubt KRS will.
Exactly, Jamie said that drivers are told to expect the next signal to be the next aspect down. You never assume that the next signal after receiving a double yellow will be another double yellow...Well no, the rule book doesnt state that. It says be *prepared* to find the next signal at caution, it doesn't mean it will be! And there are such things as local instructions.
The phrase '6 aspect' is just the way I've used to describe the arrangement, I forget what people who have worked on that line actually call it. Not only have several people confirmed to me it exists who have/do work on that line, I've seen it with my own eyes.
Note: an aspect is an indication, nothing to do with the number of lights.
Anyway, thats the arrangement of signalling on that line, you can argue all you like. Perhaps someone will similar knowledge would back me up, failing that go out and have a look yourself on a long straight.
Err no?Er pass.
One moan I do have is the signalling is wrong. In reality, within the Greater London area, Drivers get the following aspects before a red:
..... but I know they used correct spacing just missed the fact there is actually 6 aspect signalling on the line, so signals get passed doing the right speed.
...though if i wanted to be really pedantic, i could technically say that 5 aspect signalling does infact exist[/SIZE
But im not sure if '5 aspect' is the correct technical term for the flashing greens, and this is not used in everyday running and is purley for test puposes only.
Errrrm, no. This clearly shows two double-yellows (between Maryland & Forect Gate) with no other trains near that section - http://peter4816.fotopic.net/p13221817.htmlI think metroland means that generally when driving a driver will encounter a double yellow then istead of single yellow the next has cleared to double and so on. Am i right?
