It should be noted that Train Depots implicitly have signals. I would like to see the internal signal changed to presignals, this would eliminate the need for overflow loops. (BTW: I can't get overflow loops to work properly.) Franky 85.177.184.95 16:45, 27 May 2007 (CEST)

I thought Depots already had entrance presignals.
OK. So i just checked, and yes, they do. -- H3llkn0wz 16:51, 27 May 2007 (CEST)

Escape depot and presignals

I've extended the "Escape depot" section, pointing out that it can combined with presignaling.

Actually I don't know whether the the bult-in two way signal at a depot entry/exit is a entry pre-signal or a combo pre-signal: I've read "entry-" somewhere (example), and "combo" somwhere else (example)--HariSeldon 22:42, 27 June 2008 (CEST)

I've done some tests and it's definitely only an entry presignal inside a depot (not combo). You can't use a depot as one of the exits from a presignalled block because its unlimited capacity would mean the signal was always green, which makes the setup pointless. Mintra 23:55, 28 June 2008 (CEST)
It wouldn´t make it pointless! Through the ever green pre-signal trains would never wait in front of a station congesting the main line. They would rather go into the depot, if all plattforms are in use and come out again, if they are free again. As there are only entry pre-signals in the depots, I use a combo pre-signal right in front of the depot to achieve that goal. It would be more space efficient to have combo pre-signals in the depots. The setup used in the picture is pointless though, because the trains wouldn´t use the depots if there´s no free platform. They´d wait in front of the red entry pre-signal congesting the mainline, as if there were no depots ;-) RSE 00:27 19 November 2008 (CEST)

Depot Interface

When you ctrl-left click on a train wagon something happens... But what? Where might this be documented if not here?--86.7.167.79 23:59, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
