Ever wanted one train stop to handle different trains differently?

You could do this by operate the inserters dependent on train ID, but when it comes to disable the stop for different trains, this will not work.
You also could use LTN but this is not for everyone and every usecase.

What does this mod?

You can add "invisible" train stops at every normal train stop to address them in the train schedules. The invisible stops act like normal stops and are connected to their "parent" stop with circuit wires. You access their setting using the parents gui.
TLDR; multiple train stops at one position!

Disadvantages:
  • Names of all stops are shown in the map, you won't see a disabled stops name
  • You can't rely on train stop indicators anymore, as they don't indicated disabled stops
