Subway Construction Set
Signaling at the moment is very
rudimentary in the SCS. 3 aspect signals are available in 3 different formats,
wall, wall narrow, and pole. Additional signal types are planned for Phase II,
though these will require scripting to function similar to prototypical signals.
Generally, signals should be placed prior to any switch which may prevent
forward travel. For a switch which allows either a diverging route or forward
route, theres no need for a signal (as the control tower should have it set
correctly, and if set incorrectly, still will allow the train to pass without
any possibility of derailment). In the future, signals which indicate both the
status of the forward and diverging route will be included. Signals should also
be present before and after each station platform. In prototypical operation,
these are actually 2 aspect signals, as they either indicate stop or caution,
never proceed. Occasionally mid-station signals are used as well, but in Trainz
this would serve no actual purpose. Signals may also be placed in long tunnel
sections between stations.
