    Hello, new user here. Bought the game with the discount after trying it on Game Pass, well played Dovetail ;)

    Anyway, as I don't own all the routes yet, I'm wondering: are there any routes with single tracks where you have to wait on a siding for oncoming trains to pass?

    Hello, welcome to the forum. Best example I can think of is Hempstead to the junction just before Garden City on the LIRR which is single line. If you happen to get there very early, you may have to wait or vice versa, if you are going to Hempstead you may have to wait for a train to leave the single line before you can enter it. But as there is very little traffic on TSW compared to real life, it is very unlikely you’ll face cautionary aspects or red signal.

    That’s not a siding. If you actually mean a siding, I think there is a scenario where you leave the siding off New Haven Marina to start service at New Haven Harbour on the East Coastway. Again, as there is very little traffic, you will get a proceed aspect straight away.

    In real life, you would get Class 66s on the Great Western Mainline being put into loops so a passenger train can overtake but this doesn’t happen on TSW.e.g. Hanwell goods loops

    West Somerset Railway is single line. Unlikely to be an adrenaline rush though.

    In NEC you can drive freight trains from oak point yard to fresh pond yard. It's around 5 miles long. And the half of that is single-track.

    And with the BR 204 addon that will come out next Tuesday, you can drive at the single-track areas at MSB. Aschaffenburg harbor and Lohr industries.

    The route you are looking for is the West Somerset Railway (WSR) but keep in mind that the dynamic train priority system work in all the TSW dlcs from GWE to HRR. So, in all the route you can find a red signal because there is an IA train who has the grant to overtake your train (sometimes from behind, and sometimes it come from the opposite side but need to change track for example from 3 to 1 so it cut your way just in front of you).
