I rebuilt my routing completely, I deleted all TCB and built it from ground up again. Only the tracks remained.

And guess what! It's working as intended!

At stations the most likely scenario would be for ARS on the exit signal to reserve the route for a train that just pulled into the platform simply because it happened to stop close enough to the exit signal.
I think the trains stop with enough space between it and the exit signal on the platforms. I'll keep your advice in mind.
I had the exact problem on the left signal of Platform B with my new build. The signal placed the route back left before the train had fully passed the signal to the right. So I placed the signal and the influence point a little more right and the problem was solved. It seems I was a little too fast with my reply. Please forgive.

Now everything works! :)
Thank you for all your help.

Best wishes,
dan

Orwell:
On Bananach Space Git I saw that you have made some commits related to "Railway Time". Was is it? Your comments in the code doesn't appear to explain enough.

It is a new feature that I'm working on. See also the wiki page
https://advtrains.de/wiki/doku.php?id=l ... ilway_time

My long term goal is to provide a system to make trains run according to a timetable. This is the first step towards this goal: having a time synchronized to the movement of trains.

I will add documentation in the next days.

Thanks, I understand now.
Another question: when this system is mature, is there a way to access it using Lua without atlatc components (i.e. Luacontrollers or something like that)?
Also (a bit off-topic, but since you also maintain the poshud mod): can you please change the "Time:" and "Railway time:" to simply "RLT:" and "RWT:"? Otherwise the railway time can't be seen on some mobile clients because of screen size.

Also, could you please add a command that shows the timetable of stations? Something like /timetable <station code used in station/stop tracks>

I'm trying the interlocking now. When I set a route on a section which has more exits, the rails aren't switched accordingly. Is it a bug or I am expecting too much?
If you lack the reality, go on a trip or find a job.

The switches must be manually set during route programming.

At the moment, you need to set and lock(punch) all switches. This is not done automatically yet.

Hi, the website where I had my trains for download is down atm so here are the links to the git hubs of the trains:

most of the rains are not very well made but I know that I liked the Zugspitzbahn, the freight train and the rocket.

but I think all the freight cars are not working at the moment

Hm, my problem is that my free time to work on advtrains is practically inexistant at the moment, and my motivation to create new models and integrate them is close to 0.

Due to orwell not having much free time at the moment, I am currently the de-facto maintainer of advtrains when it comes to the code, however, I have no 3d-modeling skills.

Piet, you can download Blender 3D and learn how to model with it, it's free software. Who knows, maybe you'll like it and make a new train yourself.

Servers
There are some servers running the Advanced Trains mod:
Linuxworks Next Generation
- I am frequently online on this server. If you are in trouble with some railway setup or have a question, it's best to catch me there.
*) LuaATC is in use in a variety of applications, most notably the Spawn subway system, on this server
Grand Theft Auto Minetest
- This server has some subway lines operated by advtrains.
Pandorabox
There might be more of which I am not aware.
Nice mod

(yes, i figured out the mapping by hand. yes. the LED sign says "minetest" :) )
feel free to use it.

Edit: fix a small hairline flaw on one of the sides.

certainly a nifty idea... though for now i just made it say "minetest" as that seemed the most obvious.

Took a bit of trial and error to get that working from such a plain texture, i must admit.

If you do add it to advanced trains, i can make a new inventory image too if you need someone to. just ask.

Edit: heres a matching inventory icon:

hmm... those line number graphics would need modifying, they cover the LED display when visible... moving them over to one side of the window would work i think.
