Hi Dan,

The T Feather's go behind the signals, should be T Feather Straight and T Feather Right 1 Pos and for the other end should be T Feather Left 1 Pos.

Edit: like this Dan

Cheers.

G'day oldfartdan,

...Indeed, Dan, the 'boys' have it right but looking at your image, might I suggest that you move your Home Signal Mast so that it is on the 'correct' side of the points. From 'where I sit', it appears to be 'past' the points (and that will never do!) and that will always cause the signal to 'fail'...

:D Thank you gentlemen I now see how it works, My son in law Rob had it wrong.

Thanks Jerker with the signal placing as I took the pic when playing around, so it was originally back but, in the way of learning I forgot to move it back again. OOOPs
Garry any suggestions on a timber signal box that could be used at Dobie and Trawalla Please.

Off to track work again after making alterations to Dobie.

G'day oldfartdan,

...regarding the signalbox at Dobie, Dan, please refer to my response to your almost Identical question in your own 'route' thread. There's no need for me to repeat myself, here...

G'day oldfartdan,

...my most humble apologies, Dan, it seems I allowed a small 'falsehood' to pass my 'proof reading' in an earlier post. The reference to my comments regarding the signalbox at Dobie are actually in MY "VR Type 'G' Generic Signalbox" topic (not your route topiic, as I initially intimated - my apologies, again, for misdirecting you)...

Jerker {:)}

Hi Garry if I can call you by your name?

There was no apology needed as i got your drift, I some times as you probably have noticed I do get things muddled, but that's me getting older and trying to get my head around trainz.

Now to Aaron and Awesometrainz7, I have spent 6 hrs today trying as you both suggested with no success at all, so tried 3 times now so I'll give up signalling and just build the route and when finished in 12 months will submit to you gents fore tuning.
finished here with train on line, even in driver a no go.

thanks again guys.

Hi Dan,

Do you have distant signals 600~660m in front of home signals and invisible signals on the siding? signals won't go green unless there's another signal in front saying it's clear or at warning.

Cheers.
