Stopping a train when speed is Negative

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to stop a train at a certain point when it is running backwards (Speed is less than 0), but not when the train is running forwards.  

I am using train enters a track, with variable (the locomotive speed) being the and condition (< 0).  The current speed is read by another routine, and shows a positive value when going forwards, and a negative value when moving backwards.

currently the train stops both forwards and backwards.   What is wrong?

On a first guess I'd say that there is a 2nd event stopping the train!
But as always - a description of a problem is often the plan how it should work, but isn't the code that finally acts.
Will say - a description alone is almost useless.

That's spot on, Andy (y)

Never Mind, Andy was correct, there was a bogus extra event that was stopping the blasted train.

No reason for that. Each of such things gives experience points ;) Always a pleasure and a challenge to me.

Now I just need to add the two long blasts when the train starts. I already have the crossing signal, and the backing signal.   This problem developed because I was trying to get the crossing signal in a certain place on my layout.  Also got the running noise to start going backwards and forwards, and to stop when the locomotive stops.
