ASB Turnout Link
Want to control junctions with an ASB?  Plus have automatic routing for manual trains across your map?
Check out ASB Turnout - the Next Generation ASB!  NEW Version now available!



ASB stands for Active Signal Box.

The concept is a visible-in-Surveyor asset which will control both AI and manually driven trains in a specific area or track layout.  
The ASB Controller will also give a visual indication of train traffic active in the area.

ASB Crossover is designed to control train traffic at a remote diamond crossover.  It will not control points/turnouts.  For a reliable method of double track turnout control see ASB Turnout above.
