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.
As you can see in the following picture, trains can pass each other with ease, which is the main advantage
of this layout!
