I have a question and I think I am confused about the train station limit. I have a large base and I have several ore outposts. all outposts share same name like "(S) Iron" and "(D) Iron" (supply and demand). there is no special logic and every ore train is same.
my problem (or question to you all). my trains hardstop in the middle of road, especially on T-junctions. I managed to capture what is happening on the train ,which is very difficult because it happens randomly. I realized they are switching stations, from one (S) station to another, to closer one. for example they drop reservation from one station which is far away and then get reservation from a closer one. but also they hard stop in the middle of the road and accelerate again as usual. this happens on the travel from (D) to (S) (they are empty and they are going back to outpost).
I thought train station limit would mean the trains would really go there, and not drop the reservation. why do they drop the reservation when they are forced to slow down on a T-junction for example and get another reservation from a closer outpost when it is freed? is this really expected?
I was suspicious of the T-junction signaling and simplified it a lot but still they hard stop and change reservation on a station and move to another one. sometimes they are not even slowing down (because they have the green signal) but they suddenly hard stop and accelerate again. signals are just vanilla chain signals mostly.
environment: I have over 200 trains and over 70 outposts. every outpost has 6 train input (2 station with 3 as limit, never changed with circuit network etc). this is one T-junction I captured and it might be happening all over the train network which is huge. it happens on random trains, not specifically for a single outpost.
is this happening because of rules described here? https://wiki.factorio.com/Railway/Train_path_finding
since I have many outposts then this shall trigger repath frequently and then they shall move to a closer station? or did I misunderstand this case?The train limit of a train stop that is part of the train's schedule becomes not full.
