Thread: Linking Switchstands

  1. #1

    Default Linking Switchstands

    Hello,

    I am installing switch stands on my route. These are simple shunt type signals that require a link to the diverging route.

    However, when I try to link to the diverging point of a switch which has another switch starting immediately fromthe diverging point (like in a compound ladder), TSRE does not allow me to select the diverging path. I can only link a path at the end of the compund ladder.

    E.g. as below. I am trying to link the switch stand just to the diverging switch path of 342 where the cursor is, but TSRE does not allow me to do so. I can only select one of the paths from switch 370

    Try selecting the area where the 2 in 342 is in the image

    Can't really tell from the picture, is there a short piece of track between the switch tail and the next switch?
    I seem to remember reading somewhere that you can't have two switches next to each other.

    That worked like MAGIC! Thank you very much!

    After posting this, I saw your post too in the Tips & Tricks thread, and tried selecting closer to the switch, that didnt work.But your suggestion here worked perfectly.

    Thats the case of back to back switches.MSTS would blow up & RE never let you place them like so. In TSRE they can be placed so but I think OR too wont allow it to work.

    The switches in this screenshot are where a new switch is directly connected the to the diverging line of an existing switch
