Traincontroller 9 has the option to work with Stations. A Station is a collection of blocks that we allocate to it. Once Stations are defined several new options are available. The video shows four:
– Minimum and maximum allowed trains in the station: this way we can avoid the station to ever be totally deserted, or to always keep one or two lanes free for passing traffc.
– A local Spontaneous-Run: the train will never run further away than one block from the station.
– Autotrain-by-Drag-and-Drop now has Station Icons: a random train will leave from the Departure Station and will drive to a random lane in the Destination Station.
– The number of trains in the Station is available for use in a Variable.
There is more that can be done, please refer to the chapter about Stations in the Traincontroller 9 User Manual.
