The Route Table

A Route consists of one or more Turnouts or Sensors that you would like to control. Before creating a Route, you should first add some Turnouts or Sensors by using either the Turnout Table or Sensors Table. These tables can be found under the main menu "Tools -> Tables".

Once you have some Turnouts or Sensors set up, use the "Add..." button in the lower left hand corner of the Route Table pane to create a new Route.

Route Table Columns

System Name
The System Name cannot be changed once entered into the table. The "Add..." button located in the lower left corner of the pane allows you to add a new Route to the table.
User Name
You can directly enter or change the User Name for an existing Route.
Set
Pushing the "Set" button will trigger an existing Route.
Delete
Pushing the "Delete" button will remove the route from the table.

Note that this doesn't remove the Route from any files you've saved that contain it. If you load one of those files, perhaps when you restart the program, the Route will reappear. You should use one of the "Store to file" options in the "File" menu to save new versions of any files that contain this route.

Enabled
To disable a Route from triggering, uncheck the "Enabled" box for the Route. Enabled is not saved and will be restored when a Panel is loaded at startup.
Locked
When checked the Route is locked. This means that Turnouts included in the Route that can be locked by JMRI will not respond to commands from cabs or pushbuttons to change. For more information see the Lock Mode section on the Turnout Table help page and the Route Add/Edit Turnout Lock feature.
Edit
Push one of these buttons to edit that Route. For more information see Adding/Editing Routes.
