Reason for the test should horns fail, gives engmen time to slow & or stop, allowing Cond/Brakemen time enough to provide flag protection. Another note should 2 / 3 or more consecutive Xíngs exist close to one another, a longer standard safety call can cover all, rather than repeating the process over & over. Which many towns frown on, esp., nighttime hours.

    Another note: dependent on particular RR own rules, some require the leading loco or railcar to be 100% into a crossing before the last chime has ceased. Other require at least 50% or the crossing to be occupied before the last chime is released. The latter was the case with my last employer. Some require an eng / car to be completely thru a crossing before chime is released.
    Thank you Scott, good info buddy. Only really took any notice of NA railroads, when MSTS was released in 2001. So i do not really have a clue about 95% of what is required to run prototypically.

    I just saved again after 16 hours of running RTS tonight. Of course Run8 saves the world all the time every 30 minutes automatically just in case you screwed up or it crashes. Was nice watching my server at work today now that I can host again.

    Thanks
