The idea is to have trains wait in their terminal until another arriving train enters the station. The purpose is to reduce wait time for those passengers spawning at the station between trains, to reduce overflowing at stations by keeping more capacity "in the line," smaller terminals due to a large capacity train being present at all times, and to increase control over convoy spacing.
I am also working on the most accurate replica of NYC I can pull off, and that's how a lot of terminal stations work here.
For instance, the Q terminates at Ditmars avenue into a double platform station. That train waits in the station until it's released by the station controller upon arrival of a new inbound train
I.know that simutrans doesn't have station controllers
I would like to get back into experimental but I keep getting an msvcr 100 error even after downloading the redistributable on win10
