Block ID

If the signal symbol has an occupancy representation it can be activated by linking this to a block, sensor or output, but normally it is linked to the block which it belongs to.

Route IDs

Route IDs are for showing the locked routes using the route representation or the occ if no symbol is found.
This is a list of comma separated Route IDs without white space (blanks). If one of the IDs has become locked the route representation will be shown.


Read only field to show the current state: <undef>, green, yellow, red, white.


A Block, Sensor or Output object which must be free/off to accept commands to change the aspect.
Only a red command is allowed if the object is not free.


Manual operated

Used to influence the trains in auto mode if the signal is linked to a block.

With manual operated signals in auto mode it is possible to control the progress of running trains.

Manual operated signals can't be set by the auto mode process but only by hand. However, these signals can be controlled by actions in auto mode.

  • If set to the red aspect the train will be waiting until it is set to none-red by an operator.
  • If set to the yellow aspect the train will travel at Vmid.
  • The signal will be set automatically back to red when the train passes the signal.


This option is default and is responsible for setting the manual operated signal automatically back to red when the train passes the signal.
If this option is disabled the signal must be reset manually.

To prevent manual operation by clients.

Opposite ID
