  Rail Networks: Junctions for dual track layouts

When using a dual track system, junctions can be a problem. You can have lines crossing directly ("at-grade"), but this can be inefficient and, without correct signalling, can result in accidents. This page details some suggestions for connected your systems in a non-conflicting ("grade-separated") manner.


The easiest way is to go over the top of the other track. The Locomotion bridges are perfect for this task. Remember that you need to be 2 steps higher than the track in order to clear the trains. You can raise the height on corners, so building suitable bridges is easily done, even in confined areas.

If you can't go over, go under instead! Although more expensive, it is an easy route to take when space is short. Consult the building tunnels tutorial for more information on building below the surface.

If you're interested in building more complex junction layouts, the junctions section on the Transport Tycoon Station may offer some ideas - many of the layouts can be carried over to Locomotion with minimal modification.
