Need help with signals

Post by binerf »


I've just started to play with OpenTTD (v.1.9.3 - Ubuntu) but I'm still discovering signals on trains tracks.

Please have a look at the picture.

I don't understand with the signal in red round remains red while train waiting at this signal is going to upward.

Thank you in advance.

There's two types of signals: block signals and path-based signals.

With path-based signals (PBS) that signal would indeed show green. But it means that all signals at a crossing need to be path-based.
With block-based signals no train can be with a "block" within the signals. The waiting train is (because of the crossings) in the same block as the other one would be if it crossed the signal, so it's red.
