I don't know why the long-block-signal does not reserve as much as it checked, since you would never want another train to enter that area after the check - else, why check at all? I'd assume it has something to do with performance, but since you would create a signal that would reserve anyway, I can't think of a situation where that would break an existing long-block-signal in use.That being established, you could place such a reserving long-block-signal in front of the switch, no other signal on the "fast lane", a normal signal at the end of the "slow lane" and any number of gauthiers recursive signals before the long-block-signal. Gauthiers signal, according to the description, "Immediately tries to reserve next signal whatever its type", hence if there was a long-block-signal after a recursive signal, the recursive signal should already reserve the long block even beyond the station, so any "fast" train would reserve up to the switch where both lanes merge again as soon as the first recursive signal is hit, forbidding a train in the "slow" station to exit, while still allowing it to move up to the signal before the switch.I still fail to see WHY anyone would want to do it, but you could do it without adding functionality to a signal that does not need it.

Quote from: prissi on September 24, 2018, 02:14:46 PMNo it will not work, since you would need no signals after the longblock signal. Hence two tile signal spacing up to the longblock signal and then nothing until after the express stop. This make it more or less useless for me.
