Yes. Like I said, Halt stations do not have any signalling controls nor do they have any staff to handle the operations. So usually they'll have only the mainline and no switches or loop lines. Some times, one may have crossovers ( switch from one track to the other) at halt stations, but in those cases, the signalling is usually controlled from the nearest large station.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
