Directing trains into two different ways

Post by Ponade »

Hello all

So my question is simple. I have a trainstop and from there the rails a splitting in two different directions. My trains only take 1 route (right) but should go another one too so they dont deadlock.

Is there a way i can use combinators to make every 2nd train go left?

Thx for helping

Theoretically yes but don't go into that hell.
Correct signaling should also solve that problem.
Can you post a Screenshot so that we can help?

What I can think of is creating a set/reset latch on the right rail signal which would turn red after a train has passed on the right and it would reset after a train has passed on the left. You could make the left rail signal do the same so that the signals take turns. That would make sure that trains always go the other way than the previous train.

A train passing could be detected by another rail signal (behind the one connected to the S/R latch) turning red (or yellow).
