Controls

Warning devices

CabSignal

Sets the upper (signal) speed limit display and the cab signal aspect displays. However, this control is incapable of rendering any green signal heads, which must be rendered by the CabSignal1 and CabSignal2 controls.

Value Signal Speed Aspect
0-1 -- Blank over blank
2 80 Blank over blank
3 60 Blank over blank
4-5 45 Yellow over blank
6 30 Yellow over blank
7 20 Red over white
8-10 Blank over blank

CabSignal1

Toggles the green lights on the upper cab signal head. Set to 1 to turn the lights on, and 0 to turn the lights off. These lights are independent of the lights displayed by the CabSignal control.

CabSignal2

Toggles the green lights on the lower cab signal head. Set to 1 to turn the lights on, and 0 to turn the lights off. These lights are independent of the lights displayed by the CabSignal control.

TrackSpeed

Sets the lower (track) speed limit display. The track speed indicator supports the following speeds:

  • 0 (which displays --)
  • 10
  • 15
  • 25
  • 30
  • 35
  • 45
  • 50
  • 55
  • 60
  • 65
  • 70
  • 75
  • 80
  • 90
  • 100
  • 105
  • 110
  • 120
  • 125
  • 150

All other values will display the highest supported speed that is less than the requested value. For example, setting the value to 20 will display 15, and setting it to 85 will display 80.

However, if the value is set to (s - 1) < v < s where s is any supported speed, the display will turn blank (). For example, you can set the value to 9.5 to achieve this effect.
