All the Transits that JMRI knows about can be viewed using the Transit Table.
To open this tool, select Transits in the Tables submenu of the Tools menu of the main JMRI program window.
Transits are set up in the Transit Table. When set up, Transits are independent of the Trains that use them.
All Transits that currently exist can be referenced using the Transits tool under Tables in the Tools menu of most JMRI programs. There are seven columns in the Transit Table:
To define a new Transit, click the Add... button. An Add/Edit Transit window will be brought up that will allow you to designate the Sections in the new Transit. (Obviously, Sections must be defined before any Transit can be created.) Since a Transit may be used in only one Active Train at a time, the Duplicate option (see above) may save time when creating multiple copies of the same Transit.
A Transit may be set up for continuous running, allowing an Active Train to travel through its Transit multiple times without being terminated and re-activated. Provided its Transit is set up for continuous running, each time an Active Train completes traveling through its Transit, the Active Train optionally may be automatically reset by Dispatcher so it is ready to run through its Transit again. For a Transit to be capable of continuous running, its first Section and its last Section must be the same, and both must be set up for running in the same direction. This applies to both Manual and Automatic running of Trains.
For more information on setting the continuous running option, visit the Activate New Train Help.
Transits support a variety of Actions that automatically happen when a Train is run
through the Transit in Automatic mode. One or more Actions may be specified
with each Section in the Transit. Action are initiated when their associated
Section in the Transit is entered by the Automatically run Train.
Each Action has two parts:
A commonly used Action, for example, is "When the train starts, turn on its headlight." More information on Actions is located in the Actions. Read more on Actions.
Use the Store item in the File menu to save Transit information to disk. See Loading and Storing Your Work.
