Activation of passage warning lights.

Post by LevelCrossings »

Please excuse my English, I use a translator.

English:
I would like to ask if it is possible to activate the warning lights at railway crossings somewhere? Since the warning lights and ramps are activated about 1 second before the train passes, is there anything that can be done about it?
_________________________________________________________________
native language:

Chcel by som sa opýtať, či je možné niekde aktivovať výstražné svetlá na železničných priecestiach? Pretože výstražné svetlá a rampy sa aktivujú asi 1 sekundu pred prejazdom vlaku, dá sa s tým niečo urobiť? ?( ?( ?(

Thanks for any answers.

Use path-based signals.
That being said, depending on train speeds and the number of tracks to cross (and traffic jams (and/or breakdowns)) level crossings can still be deadly so generally it's best to just not use them at all.

Thank you for a very quick answer, I thought so whether it is not possible to rewrite any data in a file so that the alert is activated, e.g. 10 blocks in front of the train?

The nearest signal activates the crossing so put a signal 10 blocks before the crossing.
