Objective

This mod is dedicated to the management of train station which have trains with different routes (for example, a route to provide copper plates and another route to provide iron plates).

It add a new entity called a controller (look like a lamp) which must be put near an existing trains stop.
The controller must be connected to the circuit network.
The controller will change the name of the station depending on the signals on its inputs.
There is a table in the controller which map signals to station names, and there is a default station name which is built by inserting the name of the signal in a string pattern.

Tested with space exploration.
