Block Permissions


:!: Caution in dealing with permissions! Only set when really needed and desired. Failure to correctly set permissions mean that trains do not find a destination and are a recurring theme in the forum.

:!: Set permissions are always restrictions compared to the standard settings. If it is not possible to drive without permissions, setting additional permissions is not a solution, but rather makes the problem worse!


To prevent certain Locomotives and or Trains entering a block in automatic mode this tab can be used to define which are permitted or not.
The include list is evaluated first. If empty the exclude list is evaluated.

The screen shot shows that only BR 018, BR40 and V100 are allowed to enter this block.

Note: Permissions will be respected in automatic mode without defined destination. In automatic mode with defined destination, however, permissions are not respected for the destination block and the route to the destination block! Hence, with a given destination it is possible to move a loco or a train into a block by, e.g. drag and drop, although the loco- or train-type is not allowed in this block.

Individual Random rate

The number under the include list represents the individual random rate for the selected ID.
This value can be changed if the ID is selected.
The block random rate will be used if this value is zero. (Default)

Further information is found Here.


Specifies which engine types are allowed. All are allowed if no engine type is selected.

Commuter train

:!: The "only" option will disallow all normal trains to use this block.

No: Only Locos - Yes: Trains and Locos - Only: Only trains

A comma separated list of allowed Loco Classes.

  • This has no effect if left empty.
  • Can be modified by the Block action class.

Min. train length

If set greater than zero it will be compared with the length of the requesting train.
The block will not permit it to use when the train length is less than the min. length allowed.
