Manual Routes

CTC Wiring

CTC support introduced a route locking itself with its route ID.
This new phenomena can be used for manual routes:

  • Loco property: use only routes which are locked by itself.
  • Manual routes will accept locking if locked by itself.
  • The Loco frees up the route after reaching the next block.

CTC can also be used with virtual buttons instead of real hardware.
Use the sensor symbols as button and map them to the virtual CS. The same addresses must be used in the route CTC setup.
However the sensor button solution needs some extra fine tuning to behave like a button.
As alternative to sensors the output object could be extended to behave like a button but sends the same command as a sensor to trigger a sensor emulation.

manual routes at auto mode

Idea : go with manually controlled locomotives in auto mode without creating a Ghost in the block .

Create one Action setup: Type = Block; Command = schedule_manual
Create one Action setup: Type = Output; command off, timer = 5000

1 output Start / Finish
1 Action: Reset Output
1 schedule
1 action block: manual schedule

Action Reset the output register
Enter manual action schedule in output
Condition: start = on

A new symbol is used for the two outputs. Symbol no. 5
