can someone explain me how do it so a express line can use the same railway as a slow commuter line? I don't get that part.
I guess the guide needs to be updated now to match the new GUI
However, you need to make sure that the commuter train departs after the express train.
This is done by having two different schedules, one commuter and one express, and with the same numbers of departures pr month.
Dependent on the level of detail and finetuning that you need, you may have to specify the stops in both directions (leaving the "mirror schedule
" unchecked), but in this example that level of detail is not neccessary, so we will use the "mirror schedule
Next to the "Departures/month
" field is the "shift
" field. That is an offset that can be used to delay the departure times. The value that appears under the field is in hours, minutes and seconds (however, the hours are invinsible until you select a high enough value). That is the actual time that the schedule will be offset.
The seamingly odd minutes and seconds that it gets pushed is due to a default setting in the settings dialog, which carls explains in his original guide on the first post how to change using "spacing_shift_divisor
" in the settings (James, maybe this is worth change permanently to something more convinient?). Convenient could be if "1" in the field corresponds to 1 minute. To do that, calculate how many minutes a month have (if a month = 6.24.00, number of minutes would be 384).
The button underneath which is called "Use same shift for all stops.
" forces the shift value to be the same on all stops which have "Wait for time
" enabled. Unchecking the box allows you to specify a different shift value at each stop.
So, to answer your question, theorethically you set "wait for time" in each schedule at both their terminis, and add a shift value for the commuter train so it departs a minute or two later.
