Stop Management

Purpose | Screen Images | Data Description | Function Descriptions | How to Use


A Stop is a point on a track segment that names the place where a train is to stop. A Stop is also called a Spot by some folks. You may have as many stops on a track segment as you require but at least one stop is required to define a train stopping place on a track segment. Every industry, yard, interchange and station must have at least one stop to support operations there.
