lys_knight Posted July 13, 2016 Share Posted July 13, 2016 Hello everyone, please see after my comment/question, the WIKI part Google translated that I copied and pasted. My question is: what is exactly a "Lock Switch" ? Why we need it ? I know many of you speak a perfect English (compared to Google !!) so I would love if someone could explain this part "stop signal with comfort feature". This entire paragraph is very confusing (because again badly translated by Google) as well as the sentence "the blocking is only effective...." (I am lost !) Thank you so much for all your time and help. Oliver Virginia / USA Stop signal with comfort features Compared to the preceding circuit, there are additional functions for safe stopping, secure passage, premature braking and delayed Driving. Participating switching objects Signal (controls the behavior of the train when approaching or when stopping in front of the signal) Retaining track (red, controls the speed of the locomotive available on the track) Brake track (orange, causes premature braking of the train on approach speed) Locking switch (purple, effected in the closed state of the forced stop of the retaining track on the moving train) Main track (green, intensifies traversed train at cruising speed) The "lock switch" is a switch construct in which the radius and the length of the diverging line are so small that this string does not appear in the representation of the switch by the model railway club. These strand no track is connected. Therefore, the train will stop when the switch is set to "branch". Due to the shortness of this strand of the train remains in front of the branch are and can therefore continue to drive in straight strand, once the lock switch has been changed to "straight". The blocking is only effective when driving the lock switch in the direction of the branch when the "automatic activation" is set the course for the locomotives (is in the opposite direction "slit").
