When to inform train exit


Recommended Posts

As far as I know, departure notification should be given:

  • for a stopping train: when the train has started moving after its stop
  • for a crossing train: when the train crosses the middle of the station (or junction/crossover)

For signal boxes controlling multiple posts (with multiple timetables), like Sosnowiec Główny, that goes for the respective last post the train runs through. That means a train that stops at Sosnowiec Główny should be announced to Katowice Zawodzie not when it starts moving from the platform, but when it passes the junction from Sosnowiec Południowy.

I send out the message when I see the red lights of a train after passing my signal box, making sure it hasn't lost any cars on the way (even if it is not implemented yet). 

Making sure a train is complete by checking the tail signal a) is not necessary if there is a working track occupancy detection system, b) is a condition for notifying the previous dispatcher of arrival, not for notifying the next dispatcher of departure.
