Alternative Platform and Line


Recommended Posts

This is a question:
Can I switch train platform at the last minute? Like if a train goes to platform 1 track 4 at Zawierce, can it go to a different platform?
Also at Zawierce, is it ok to sent trains meant for line 1 towards lazy onto 158 or 160 or vice versa? What about sending 160 train towards 158 or vice versa?

Yes. As long as the train is able to stop at one of the platforms, it counts for the drivers. Think of the labeled platforms as the scheduled one but any alternate is acceptable lets say for traffic, track closure, train issue, etc...

At Zawierce, generally yes. Just ask the Lazy AI if its okay to send the train that way. If it tells you no because of a platform issue, don't force it as it could break it.

At Zawierce, you can basically send any freight anywhere but at Lazy Lc, this does not apply. It looks like they disabled the interlocking requests for tracks 3 and 7 at Lazy to prevent people from sending stuff that way

And the platform is long enough to accommodate the train fully

Sorry I was only thinking of Zawierce. 

Are there stations that the longer trains stop at though that have platforms they don't fit at? I'm not aware of which ones if there is (that players control at this time)

I'd say the side platform at Sosnowiec Główny as it's shorter than the main island, and it's doubtful you'll get a full rake EC on there. Next time you're about we can try it and find out! 

Zawiercie though, any platform works.

I was wondering if you were thinking about Glowny. All platforms work. EC fits perfect on track 4. If the AI spots the train at the platform heading North, it will actually leave its tail in the interlocking but the track circuits aren't exact so its clear on the dispatcher board

If its a player heading south and they aren't confident, a route out or a sub signal and a verbal warning to them might be best to make them not worry about the signal

I'd still be reluctant to route one on their or accept the route myself if it means stopping with millimetre precision

I'll have to share it another time but I took a screenshot today of me waiting for an EC to depart off track 4 at Glowny. Its not millimeters but its not ideal. Would be fine for Northbounds but Southbounds would require vigilance from the driver and dispatcher.

Thats why you will see me use track 4 for the commuters when the long distance trains are in the area

The southbound EC train from Warsaw to Katowice does NOT fit on the side platform at Sosnowiec Main. I was routed there once, and the last two carriages were platform-less.

For context and comparison, EC trains coming from Warsaw are 11 wagons long (including the lead locomotive), while EC trains going to Warsaw are only 9 wagons long (including the lead locomotive). Thus, the former does not fit, but the latter does.

I have no idea why this imbalance exists, but I'm not gonna complain, it's just a little detail dispatchers need to be aware of when altering the allocated platform of a train.

Well then I must have just looked at the wrong trains then. I've seen every train use that track without problem either passing by or with myself dispatching. I'll have to pay more attention to see which ones don't fit all on the platform maybe on a dead server.

Again, I just use that one for the commuters unless I have to because its a small platform but I've never seen players on the longer trains say its not counting them as okay to stop to exchange passengers
