crossings
« on: April 07, 2008, 01:37:57 am »
I've noticed that when i try to identify sections of track that include a crossing (60*), both directions are identified as the same.
is there a way to have one half of the crossing on one section, and the other on a second section (powered independantly)

Please advise

Hi Dale,

Indeed, currently a crossing is seen as one electrical entity. I know that in many cases, this is technically not correct. Thanks for pointing that out.
On the other hand, it is often advised not to let trains stop on crossings or turnouts, and to just wire them in such a way that they're always powered.

Especially in the DCC (digital) world, this would be the case anyway.

But you're right, and we added this issue to our todo list for future investigation and development.

Thanks again!

David.
