Type

Type Name1) Remark SpDrS60
symbol2)
straight Straight Default straight track.
curve Curve Default curved track.
dir Direction One way direction.
The Arrow is descriptive only and symbolises usage in one direction; driving is still possible in both directions in manual mode and, provided the corresponding route exists, in auto mode as well.
Of particular importance when using the Analyzer: Only the route in the indicated direction will be generated.
dirall Both directions Both directions.
The double arrow is descriptive only and symbolises usage in both directions.
buffer Buffer End track safety buffer.
connector Level connector
Connector curve right
Connector curve left
Symbolic continuation of a railway line to another level or another module, as a couple also to be used to represent a bridge / underpass.
Note: The connector is of particular importance when using the Analyzer. If used between layers or modules, you must follow some requirements.
Rocview: A double click in the layout will switch to the tab of the counterpart connector.
tracknr User defined track symbol (handled by analyser as straight track)
curvenr User defined track symbol (handled by analyser as curve track)
dcurve Double curve No longer supported in the standard. Add the User theme to the SVG paths, select curvenr type 11.
It is not recommended to use this twin symbol any longer.


Direction Exception

In combination with the Direction symbol, the listed (CSV) source blocks may ignore the given direction.
This will be used by the analyser to create routes in a forbidden direction.
The Symbol in the track layout will be marked with a capitol character E.

Number

SVG symbol number

  • track type “tracknr” : “track-#(-occ/-route).svg”
  • track type “curvenr” : “curve-#(-occ/-route).svg”

where the SVG file name must contain the number instead of the #.
The Accessories theme and/or User themes that contain the desired SVG files, must as SVG themes activated.

Connector

For connectors the number select not a symbol (type is fixed), but specifies an identifier.

  • If two connectors with the same number between 1 and 9 are configured, positioned on the same Track plan level, and on the same X or Y axis, and when the intersections “//” face each other, this Connector pair will be considered by the Track plan analyzer (see there).
  • If two connectors with the same number between 10 and 99 are configured, this Connector pair will be considered by the Track plan analyzer, if they are positioned on different Track plan levels.
