Do you need a way to get multiple trains into one block?
Is the safe following distance hurting throughput on your main line?
Do you like train wrecks?

If you answered yes to any of the above, this mod is for you!


WARNING

Accidental misuse of this mod will cause train wrecks.
Intentional misuse of this mod will cause bigger train wrecks.


Instructions

Place a magnet signal in front of the block you want the train to enter blindly.
To turn off a magnet signal, place a circuit controlled rail signal in front of it. Magnet signal circuit networks are disabled for performance reasons.
Trains approaching a magnet signal might appear to be manually controlled. To take over manual control of such a train, turn automatic mode on and off.
