I hope I'm not double posting. I searched but I didn't find this suggestion.
Is having express signals/track possible or available? Or would they be called spur signals? I guess what I'm asking is, are there signals that will stop a train from entering a signal block if by doing so it will mean stopping a train running at full speed?
Possibly a priority setting, or a combo light/trigger set up on the express track. ie: if trigger 1 has been passed, and trigger 2 hasn't signal stays red on the spur, but no red hinders the express track thru the block. I've tried to do this with the combo signals, just hasn't worked at all.
Another way would be a delayed light, pausing minimally after the signal block clears, before releasing the spur. In the event of a jam, the delay would allow the express track to clear before the spur proceeds onto the express.
The way it is now, the spur pulls out onto the express track as soon as the block is clear, causing a back up where waiting trains take turns entering the signal block.
As I said earlier, Thank you, thank you!
Guess there's no chance A-Train is out there somewhere that's been given so much effort?
Control+click on the signal to open the signal menu. Then click on Routefinding to open that menu. The maximum speed setting will allow you to set the signal so that only trains that have that maximum speed will be allowed to pass. Trains with slower maximum speeds are blocked.

Yes, with three qualifications:Leanden wrote:Erm does that routefinding stuff come as default on ttdpatch?
1. It requires a fairly recent nightly build
2. The tracerestrict switch in the ttdpatch.cfg file must be set to "on".
2. It requires a grf file that provides extra signal graphics.
A good reference to signalling can be found here.
Not a problem ... It was a fair comment offered as a part of your TTDPatch question. Any chance that something offering similar functionality might be available under OpenTTD? Now that would be a good question for the OTTD section of the forums.I know it isnt int he latest Openttd build. (Yes i can see this is the TTDPatch forum)
The second option is obviously to just build a line for slower trains and a line for express, but that pretty much doesn't even solve your original problem.
