    The problem is pretty much described in the picture.

    ETA: it's not to do with the prop_dynamic, i've stood in the path of the cart when the warning siren went off, and nothing happened.

    Hard to say with what info is given. However I believe you could simplify the entire system down to just the timer... Use OnTimerHigh for one direction and OnTimerLow for the other. Then check the "oscillator" flag on the timer, and it will alternate between those two outputs every time it fires.

    Well I don't know what other info to provide. As for the timer I think I'll settle for what I have now but that sounds like a sexy idea for the future.

    Screenshots/text of all your actual settings would help. Telling me what it is supposed to do (mind you, it's not working) doesn't really help me figure out what's going wrong with how you have it set up. :/

    Why I suggest simplifying it down to the timer is because it leaves less room for error.

    Hmm. I don't see anything wrong with it. You could try using different inputs to the train, like SetSpeedDir with 1 and -1 (might need to turn on Manual Train Speed for that), but that may not help... your paths don't have anything odd on them do they?
