  Rail Networks: Dual track layouts

One of the more effective track systems is a dual track layout. Essentially, this is a system where two tracks run side by side. Each track is a one-way track, one in either direction. This means you can can several trains running on a single line, unlike a single track, which can only have one.

Dual lines usually attach themselves to some of the more advanced stations, as you can see in the advanced station layout guides. In the pictures below, you can see how the one-way signals move the trains in the single direction.
