Now that you can drive a train, it is time to learn about the Traffic Control Console (CVL) and its operations.

Opening the CVL

Opening the CVL is possible with two keys: F1, (open the CVL) or F2, (open and give input).

The CVL panel

When you have opened the CVL, you will see a blue screen with the track (yellow lines) and section-numbers (white numbers). In this panel, you can make a path through intersections. In this panel, you also can see the actual sim time and where the trains are on the tracks.


Make a path

Before you can cross an intersection, a path is necessary. This path can be auto-generated by your train number or can be made manually by typing RWI.png When you make a wrong path and want to delete it, you can type RWO.png

Change your train number

For making an auto-generated route or a DRIM text, you can change your train number. By default, a train unaffected has an F100?? code. This number has no function; to change this number type. TWZ.png You can check all destination codes here.

Split trains

If you want to split a single train into two separate trains, you can type SPLIT.png. Now you have two trains with different codes.

Station departure block

If a train is ahead of schedule, it will get a station departure block (vertrekverbod). You can also give this signal manually by typing VVI.png or remove it manually by typing VVO.png

Automatic junctions

When a path file is loaded, you can choose which junctions are automated and which not. You can do this by typing DV.png or the other commands.

  • DV – Go straight ahead on both sides
  • AK – Reverse at this junction
  • AB – Automatic junction by destination code
  • FE – Manual junction

Not every code is available on every junction.
